In a dispute filed on May 31, 2022, an investor alleged Jeffrey Eglow acted negligently. The client seeks $250,000 in this pending dispute.

FINRA Rule 3110

Negligent supervision violates FINRA Rule 3110, which requires firms to establish supervisory systems to maintain their compliance with securities regulations. This includes appointing supervisors that have adequate training or experience for their role.

What qualifies as broker negligence?

Many broker behaviors may qualify as negligence. Some common forms of negligence include omitting or misrepresenting material facts, making unsuitable investment recommendations, or conducting excessive trading.

Investors who feel their losses are the result of broker negligence may be able to recover their money by pursuing FINRA arbitration.

Settled Dispute

On July 25, 2016, an investor alleged that Jeffrey Eglow over-concentrated his account in unit investment trusts (UITs) and energy securities and held leveraged exchange-traded fund (ETF) positions as long positions, resulting in unrealized losses. The client sought $1,000,000 in damages and received a settlement of $115,000.

FINRA Rule 2111

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

The need for suitability also applies to investment strategies recommended or executed by brokers. Over-concentration in a particular sector or security is often an unsuitable strategy because of the degree of risk involved.

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

What are unit investment trusts?

A unit investment trust (UIT) allows investors to invest in a portfolio of stocks and bonds that will not be actively managed or changed until the investments reach maturity. While UITs seem simple at first, they still come with potential drawbacks like illiquidity, long maturity dates, and fees.

What are exchange-traded funds?

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) function similarly to mutual funds, but investors’ returns depend on the performance of the ETF’s underlying stocks, bonds, or other investments. Investors should be aware that, because of the fluctuating value of their shares, an ETF may not yield the returns they expect.
