Dec 5, 2022 Investor Disputes

Investor Dispute

On October 16, 2022, an investor alleged that Susan Barnett gave “poor advice” with regard to a managed account investment on March 18, 2021. The client sought $100,000 in damages but was denied by the firm.

Investors should know, however, that firms can deny disputes without allowing an outside dispute. Investors may be able to recoup their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration after a denial.

FINRA Rule 2010

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Offering poor advice could be a violation of FINRA Rule 2010. If you have questions about your broker’s conduct, you should reach out to a securities attorney today.
