FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must use the information in an investor’s profile, such as their age, risk tolerance, and tax status when making recommendations.

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recoup their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.

What is a Real Estate Investment Trust?

A real estate investment trust (REIT) allows investors to generate returns from a real estate portfolio without taking on the cost and responsibility of managing the properties. REITs tend to be illiquid, making them unsuitable for many investors.

What are Variable Annuities?

Variable annuities are complex investments. These policies can decline in value depending on the performance of the underlying security. Surrender charges, tax penalties, and other fees can make these policies unsuitable.

Tax Lien

On December 6, 2021, Scott Roslonowski incurred a $499 tax lien.
