Jeremy Strickler is the Subject of a Million-Dollar Dispute

Jeremy Strickler (CRD #: 3075697), a broker previously registered with Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network, is the subject of an investor dispute. This disclosure appears on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on November 20, 2023. 

On October 3, 2023, investors alleged that Jeremy Strickler failed to disclose material information, including conflicts of interest, about an investment. The investors further alleged that the investment was risky, illiquid, and unsuitable. 

The investor is seeking $1,115,000. 

What is an Unsuitable Investment?

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment strategy fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the investor’s profile, which contains the following investor characteristics:

  • Age
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
  • Investing experience
  • Tax status
  • Financial goals

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover losses from unsuitable investment recommendations by pursuing FINRA arbitration.

What is Regulation Best Interest? 

Regulation Best Interest expanded on the requirements of FINRA Rule 2111, which defines suitable investment recommendations. In addition to limiting their recommendations to investments that suit their investors’ needs, brokerage firms must also uphold a Duty of Care, the Conflict of Interest Obligation, and the Disclosure Obligation. These obligations and duties require brokerage firms to disclose conflicts of interest. Firms must also research the market for investments that could offer similar benefits at a lower cost before making a recommendation.
