Kurt Cambier Facing Allegations of Commission Abuse 

Aug 1, 2023 Unsuitable Investments

Kurt Cambier (CRD #: 1392482), a broker registered with Cambridge Investment Research, has a new investor dispute on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on July 28, 2023. Details are provided below. 

On May 11, 2023, investors alleged that Kurt Cambier recommended an investment for the sake of high commissions and fees. They further alleged that the investors were deprived of the ability to generate reasonable returns that they would have in a diversified portfolio. 

On December 31, 2021, an investor alleged that Kurt Cambier recommended investments that were not suitable for their needs. The investor sought $125,000 and the dispute settled for $67,500. 

FINRA Rule 2111 – Suitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals. Higher-risk investments typically feature bigger commissions for brokers. Brokers may engage in commission abuse and recommend high-risk investments for the sake of their own financial gain, without consideration for their client’s risk tolerance. Investment strategies may also be unsuitable if they over-concentrate a portfolio in a particular stock or sector. Diversification helps lower a portfolio’s overall risk. 

These types of unsuitable investment recommendations violate FINRA Rule 2111.
