Kurt Stein Involved in Unsuitability Dispute

Kurt Stein (CRD #: 3159180), a broker registered with Quint Capital Corporation, is involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on February 10, 2022. He is also an investment advisor registered with Quint Capital Management.

According to the allegations filed on December 16, 2021, Kurt Stein allegedly recommended unsuitable investments. The investor is seeking $300,000—the case is still pending.

What is a Suitable Investment?

FINRA 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. 

FINRA Rule 2111 sets out three components of suitability obligations: reasonable-basis suitability, customer-specific suitability, and quantitative suitability.

  1. Reasonable-basis Suitability: Brokers are required to use reasonable diligence before making a recommendation. This means they have an obligation to understand an investment strategy and its potential risks or rewards.
  2. Customer-specific Suitability: Before recommending a particular security or investment strategy involving a specific client, brokers are required to have reasonable grounds for believing it will be suitable based on that client’s personal profile. The profile includes information on the investor’s financial goals, investing experience, and risk tolerance. 
  3. Quantitative Suitability: Brokers with control over a customer’s account must have a reasonable basis to believe that the series of transactions they recommend are not excessive before executing them. Excessive transactions run the risk of incurring too many fees and negating any returns.
