On October 12, 2023, Nicholas Caruso consented to the findings that he violated Regulation Best Interest following allegations that he recommended an excessive number of trades to an elderly couple. 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.”

  • Customer B – Allegedly lost approximately $15,800 while paying $6,8000 in commissions and trade costs. 

Regulation Best Interest 

Regulation Best Interest imposes a “Duty of Care” obligation that requires Nicholas Caruso have a reasonable basis for recommending a series of transactions. Brokers are not permitted to put the interests of the brokerage firm ahead of their customers.
