Jun 7, 2022 Unsuitable Investments

Jeffrey Schultz (CRD #: 2332248), a broker registered with Janney Montgomery Scott, is involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on May 24, 2022. If you have concerns about his conduct as a broker, keep reading.

On February 15, 2022, investors alleged that Jeffrey Schultz recommended unsuitable investment products. The clients alleged they were not eligible for the products and that their broker failed to provide adequate assistance to the clients in their attempt to resolve the issue.

The dispute was denied, but investors should know that firms can deny disputes without any external review. Investors can still recover their losses following a denial.

Unsuitable Recommendations

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. An investor’s profile includes information about their risk tolerance, financial goals, and age. Investors who rely on their brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses through FINRA arbitration.

  • Investments can be unsuitable because they are high risk and likely to lose money (like alternative investments).
  • These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves. For instance, an investment strategy might be unsuitable if the securities are overconcentrated in a particular stock or sector.
