Investor Dispute

On July 8, 2022, an investor alleged that Shmuel Maya engaged her in a securities transaction outside of his relationship with his firm, J.P. Morgan Securities, resulting in a loss for the client. The investor alleged this activity took place between July 9, 2020, and January 21, 2021. The client sought $75,000 but was denied by the firm.

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

FINRA Rule 3270

FINRA Rule 3270 requires brokers to seek and receive firm approval before participating in securities transactions outside of the firm. 

FINRA Rule 2010

Violations of this and other FINRA Rules frequently qualify as automatic violations of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires brokers to uphold high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.
