Alleged Unsuitable ETF Recommendation

In a dispute filed on March 18, 2022, an investor alleges Jonathan Krueger's recommendation of ProShares Ultra VIX Short Term Futures ETF (UVXY) was unsuitable as a part of their portfolio strategy. The client seeks $70,576.31 in this pending dispute.

FINRA Rule 2111

Brokers must follow FINRA Rule 2111 when recommending investments and forming investment strategies. This rule defines suitable investments as those that match an investor’s profile.

An investor’s profile details their financial goals and other investments, as well as describing their tax status, age, and risk tolerance.

Investors who believe their losses were caused by an unsuitable investment strategy or recommendation can pursue FINRA arbitration to recover the damage.

What are exchange-traded funds?

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) allow investors to pool their money in a bundle of assets, such as stocks, bonds, or currencies. However, the value of an ETF fluctuates according to the value of these underlying assets—which means investors stand to lose much or all of their investment if the ETF underperforms or fails completely.
