Investor Disputes

On November 21, 2023, an investor alleged that Leonard Rich completed an investor’s account opening forms and inputted incorrect investment objectives and risk tolerances. The investor further alleges that Leonard Rick engaged in excessive trading and the firm ignored red flags in regard to these issues. The investor is seeking $114,500. 

High Standards of Commercial Honor 

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Completing account opening forms with inaccurate information and ignoring red flags violates this rule. 

Excessive Trading

FINRA Rule 2111, a.k.a. The Suitability Rule, requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ needs. Trades must be quantitatively suitable, meaning the number of trades must suit an investor’s needs. Each trade comes with a transaction fee, so too many transactions will result in excessive fees for the investor. Excessive trading is also known as “churning.”
