Did Jeffrey Tidwell Recommend Unsuitable Investments?

Jeffrey Tidwell (CRD #: 2923013), a broker and investment advisor registered with Janney Montgomery Scott, was involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on March 26, 2022. 

According to the allegations filed on January 10, 2022, Jeffrey Tidwell sold portfolio assets in his client’s commission accounts rather than fee-based accounts resulting in overcharges and lost investment opportunities. The firm denied the case. Investors should know that they can still pursue FINRA arbitration and recover their losses following a denial.

FINRA Rule 2111

Brokers must consider the factors listed below when recommending investments to investors:

  • The investor’s current financial state and tax status 
  • The investor’s financial goals  
  • The investor’s risk tolerance 

According to FINRA Rule 2111, brokers may be liable for investor unsuitability claims if they fail to consider the factors listed above. A broker must have exercised due diligence and have an adequate reason for believing that an investment will be suitable or beneficial for the investor.
