Investor Dispute

On July 11, 2022, an investor filed a dispute alleging Cary Urich committed the following violations:

The investor seeks $1 million in damages in this pending dispute.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to consider whether an investment suits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must use the information in an investor’s profile, including their age, risk tolerance, and other investments when making investment recommendations.

The requirement for suitability also applies to investment strategies and overall trading activity. Excessive trading, for example, violates the need for quantitative suitability.

Under this rule, brokers also have an implicit obligation towards fair dealing in their interactions with clients.

Investors who rely on their broker for recommendations may be able to recoup their losses through FINRA arbitration.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of deception, manipulation, or other fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. Misrepresenting or omitting information about investments violates this rule.

FINRA Rule 3270

FINRA Rule 3270 requires brokers to provide their firm with written notice before they engage in any outside business activities and receive approval for these activities.
