On October 31, 2023, an investor alleged that John Dovidio did not advise of the risks associated with a securities collateralized line of credit. Securities-backed lines of credit may tout low interest rates, but investors should be informed of their high risk for losses during periods of market volatility. 

The dispute was denied, but investors should know that firms can deny disputes without any external review. Our securities attorneys can still recover losses following a denial via FINRA arbitration
