Mar 16, 2022 Unsuitable Investments

Jack Jones (CRD #: 2539111), a broker registered with Triad Advisors, is facing his third unsuitability dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on March 2, 2022. He is also an investment advisor registered with Triad Hybrid Solutions.

Pending Unsuitability Dispute

According to the allegations filed on November 22, 2021, Jack Jones recommended a private placement investment that did not meet their needs and objectives. The allegations further state that Jack Jones did not adequately disclose the investment and failed to conduct adequate due diligence on the offering. The investors are seeking $100,000.

Settled Unsuitability Disputes

  • On March 16, 2020, Jack Jones was involved in an unsuitability dispute alleging he recommended an unsuitable investment strategy beginning in 2014. The case was settled for $175,000.
  • On July 9, 2019, Jack Jones was involved in yet another dispute alleging an unsuitable investment recommendation. The investors who invested $5000,000 in GBP Holdings claimed the investment was unsuitable five years after the initial purchase in 2014. The case was settled for $132,500.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires financial advisors to have a "reasonable basis" to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy is suitable for their client. Investments may be unsuitable because they do not align with the investor's financial goals, investing experience, age, or risk tolerance.

  • Investments can be unsuitable because they are high risk and likely to lose money.
  • Securities may also be unsuitable because they are illiquid, meaning that they are meant to be held for an extended period of time and could be costly to cash out.
  • Securities must also be quantitatively suitable, meaning that brokers executed an excessive number of trades.
  • These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves.

A violation of FINRA Rule 2111 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to "observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade."
