What is broker negligence?

Brokers can act negligently in many ways, ranging from unauthorized trading to omitting material information about investments’ risks and returns. Investors who feel their losses are the result of broker negligence can seek out FINRA arbitration to recover their funds.

FINRA Rule 3110

Failure to supervise violates FINRA Rule 3110, which requires firms to maintain systems of supervision to ensure their compliance with securities regulations.

Regulatory Action by State of New York

On November 30, 2017, the New York State Department of Financial Services named Philip Gibson in a regulatory action filed against Newbridge Securities Corporation.
