Investor Dispute

On January 3, 2023, an investor alleged that Peter Chen failed to follow their trade instructions. The client sought $50,130 in damages but the dispute was denied by the firm.

However, investors should know that firms don’t need to permit an external review before denying disputes. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration and may be able to recover their losses following a denial.
