Investor Dispute

On February 14, 2023, an investor alleged that Jeffrey Coleman engaged in excessive trading in their accounts and expressed concerns regarding a variable annuity purchased in 2014. The client sought $50,000 in damages but the dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should know that firms don’t need to permit an outside review before denying a dispute. Investors may be able to recover their funds by seeking out FINRA arbitration following a denial.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to take investors’ profiles into account when recommending investments. Brokers must take into account the information described in an investor’s profile, such as their tax status, risk tolerance, and overall financial situation.

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

What are Variable Annuities?

Variable annuities are complex investments. These policies can decline in value depending on the performance of the underlying security. Surrender charges, tax penalties, and other fees can make these policies unsuitable.

Tax Liens

In 2018 and 2019, Jeffrey Coleman was subject to two tax liens totaling $63,447.15.
