FINRA Rule 2111
FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ profiles. These profiles describe an investor’s tax status, financial goals, and other characteristics.
Excessive trading, also called churning, violates the need for quantitative suitability. This means that a broker’s overall trading activity must be suitable given the client’s profile. Excessive trading can generate high fees and commissions that can significantly reduce an investor’s returns.
Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can seek out FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their losses.
In 2022, Scott Coonrod was subject to $129,110.31 in tax liens.
