Jul 26, 2022 Misrepresentation

Investor Disputes

On May 5, 2022, a client alleged that Leigh Einhorn made an unsuitable recommendation to invest in bonds during an inflationary period and misrepresented the risk as low. 

The client sought $50,450.85 in damages but the dispute was denied by the firm.

Another denied dispute, filed on December 11, 2015, alleged that Leigh Einhorn recommended an annuity on October 27, 2015, that did not provide the safety the investor requested and came with excessive and undisclosed fees.

Investors should know that firms can deny disputes without an external review. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their losses following a denial.

FINRA Rules 2111 and 2020

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that sufficiently fit an investor’s profile. Investors’ profiles contain information such as their age, tax status, and other investments. Brokers must use the information described in their client’s profile when recommending individual investments and investment strategies.

FINRA Rule 2020 bans the use of deception, manipulation, and other fraudulent means of influencing the purchase and sale of securities. This includes the misrepresentation or omission of material facts, such as an investment’s fees, limitations, or expected returns.

Investors who feel their losses were caused by misrepresented or unsuitable investments may be able to recover their funds by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
