What is a REIT?

A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a real estate investment that comprises a selection of income-producing real estate. These investments can be high-risk especially if they are non-traded.

Previous Unsuitability Allegation

FINRA Rules 2111, 2020, and 2010

Brokers who recommend securities are subject to FINRA rules and regulations.

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. An investor’s profile includes information about their risk tolerance, financial goals, and age. Investors who rely on their brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses through FINRA arbitration if their broker recommended an unsuitable investment.

FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokerage firms and stockbrokers from making material misrepresentations or persuading individuals to buy investments with false statements about their potential benefits.

Kennister Daley’s alleged unethical conduct also violates FINRA rule 2010, which state that brokers must uphold high standards of commercial honor.
