Jonathan Hurwitz Subject of a FINRA Investigation

Jonathan Hurwitz (CRD #: 2580461), a broker registered with David Lerner Associates, is the subject of a FINRA investigation. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on June 4, 2024. Details concerning this dispute are provided below. 


On March 18, 2024, FINRA made a preliminary determination to recommend that disciplinary action be brought against Jonathan Hurwitz alleging violations of FINRA Rule 3110 for failing to supervise sales of Energy 11, L.P., and Energy 12, L.P. These recommendations also allegedly violated FINRA Rule 2111 and 2010 because Jonathan Hurwitz also failed to have a reasonable basis to believe the investments were suitable for those customers based on their investor profiles. 

Failure to Supervise 3110

FINRA Rule 3110 requires that firms establish supervisory systems to maintain their compliance with securities regulations. Their systems of supervision should be able to catch unsuitable recommendations. 

FINRA Rule 2111 – Unsuitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investor profiles have information on the investor’s age, risk tolerance, tax status, investing experience, and financial goals. Investments that do not take these factors into account may be unsuitable
