Feb 14, 2023 Misrepresentation

Investor Dispute

On October 4, 2022, an investor alleged Laurie Laucks misrepresented a stock fund as 100% safe and similar to a money market. This dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should be aware that firms don’t need to permit an external review before denying disputes. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration after a denial and may be able to recover their losses.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 bans the use of manipulation, deception, and other fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. The misrepresentation or omission of material facts – including risks – violates this rule.
