Investor Dispute

On June 16, 2022, an investor alleged that Elisabeth Andreason purchased unsuitable investments in her account in 2021. This dispute is currently pending.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must consider their client’s age, tax status, and other information contained in the investor’s profile.

  • Investments may be unsuitable because they are high-risk, and the investor is likely to lose money.
  • Illiquid investments may also be unsuitable because they are meant to be held long-term, and they may conflict with an investor’s goals. Illiquid investments also tend to rack up high fees for investors who try to sell them too early.
  • Trades must be quantitatively suitable, meaning that the overall number of trades executed is appropriate for the investors. Excessive trading generates fees and commissions that can severely cut into investors’ returns.
  • Suitability also applies to investment strategies. Overconcentration in a particular sector or stock is frequently an unsuitable strategy due to the level of risk involved.

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