Investor Dispute

In a dispute filed on December 22, 2022, an investor alleges that Randy Moening executed unauthorized trades that were unsuitable given the client’s investment objectives and strategy.

The client further alleged that Randy Moening misrepresented these investments as being conservative, liquid investments, but that they allegedly lost significant value and were later subject to a contingent deferred sales charge. The investor alleges that this misconduct occurred between November 23, 2020, and July 5, 2022.

This dispute is currently pending.

FINRA Rule 3260

Unauthorized trading violates FINRA Rule 3260, which limits brokers to engaging in discretionary trading only in pre-approved accounts. Firms must also approve discretionary accounts before this trading can occur.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ profiles. An investor’s profile includes information about their financial goals, age, and risk tolerance.

Investors who believe their losses are the result of unsuitable investment recommendations may be able to recover their funds by seeking out FINRA arbitration.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of manipulative, deceptive, and otherwise unethical tactics to influence the purchase and sale of securities. This includes the misrepresentation of an investment’s risks, requirements, or fees.
