Mitchell Hirsch (CRD #:1147538), a broker registered with Fortune Financial Services is involved in an unsuitability dispute according to his BrokerCheck record accessed on January 10, 2022. He is also a registered investment advisor at One Seven. 

According to the allegations filed on October 29, 2021, Mitchell Hirsch breached his fiduciary duty by investing investors' money in unsuitable, redundant hedge funds for the sole reason that these investments generated substantially higher fees.

Recommending Unsuitable Investments is a Breach of FINRA Rule 2111

“Suitability” is the term used to describe an ethical, enforceable standard for investment advisers. An investment is only considered "suitable" if it meets the suitability criteria outlined in FINRA Rule 2111.  

A financial advisor must have exercised due diligence and have an adequate reason for believing that an investment will also be suitable or beneficial for the investor. Investors who rely on their investment advisors for recommendations may be able to recover their losses through FINRA arbitration if their broker recommended an unsuitable investment.  

Bankruptcy 

On May 13, 2013, Mitchell Hirsch discharged a bankruptcy.
