Investor Dispute

On February 2, 2023, an investor alleged that Michael Gray recommended investments that were unsuitable for their investment objective. This dispute is currently pending. Unsuitable investments violate FINRA Rule 2111. 

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to take into account investors’ financial goals when recommending investments. Brokers must examine the investor’s profile, which contains the following information:

  • Age
  • Financial goals
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
  • Investing experience
  • Tax status

Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can pursue FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their losses.
