Investor Alleges Gregory Pidgeon’s Recommendations Were Not in Their Best Interest

On April 14, 2022, an investor alleged that, among other things, Gregory Pidgeon recommended alternative investments that did not suit his investor’s needs in 2021 and 2022. This dispute was denied by the firm.
However, investors should know that firms can deny disputes without an outside review. Investors can still seek out FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their funds following a denial.
FINRA Rule 2111
FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the investor’s profile, which contains the following investor characteristics:
- Financial goals
- Risk tolerance
- Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
- Investing experience
- Tax status
Investors may be able to recover funds lost through unsuitable investment recommendations by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
