Linh Tran Allegedly Misrepresented Direct Investment

Nov 29, 2022 Misrepresentation

Linh Tran (CRD #: 5254779), a broker registered with Morgan Stanley, was recently involved in an investor dispute, according to her BrokerCheck record, accessed on November 19, 2022. Read on to learn more about her conduct as a broker.

Investor Dispute

On August 18, 2022, an investor alleged that Linh Tran misrepresented the liquidity of a direct investment purchased in 2020. This dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should know that firms don’t need to permit an external review before denying a dispute. Investors may be able to recover their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration after a denial.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 bans the use of manipulative, deceptive, or otherwise fraudulent methods to influence investors’ decisions. Misrepresenting an investment’s features, risks, or potential returns violates this rule.

FINRA Rule 2010

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Violations of FINRA Rule 2020 are also violations of FINRA Rule 2010.
