Dianne Townsend Allegedly Failed to Follow Instructions

May 27, 2022 Investor Disputes

Dianne Townsend (CRD #: 2216130), a broker registered with Raymond James & Associates, was involved in a recent dispute, according to her BrokerCheck record, accessed on May 19, 2022. Investors should know that she has a total of seven investor disputes on her record. 

Alleged Failure to Follow Instructions

In a dispute filed on February 28, 2022, an investor alleged that Dianne Townsend failed to follow their trade instructions. The client sought $50,000 in damages, but the dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should know that firms do not need to allow an outside review before issuing a denial. Investors can still seek out FINRA arbitration after a denial and potentially recover their losses.

FINRA Rule 5310

FINRA Rule 5310 requires brokers to follow investors’ instructions when executing trades. It also requires that brokers conduct due diligence when looking for the best market for a trade.
