Did Vince Annable Recommend Unsuitable Investments?

Vince Annable (CRD #: 1033573), a broker registered with Coastal Equities, is facing new investor allegations that he had recommended unsuitable investments and overconcentrated certain investments in their portfolios. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on June 22, 2022.

On April 12, 2022, an investor alleged that Vince Annable recommended high risk, illiquid, and unsuitable investments, in violation of FINRA Rule 2111. The investor is seeking to recover $600,000.

What are suitable investments?

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investors’ profiles include information concerning their financial goals, other investments, and personal information like their age.

Some common violations of this rule include:

  • Recommendations of high-risk investments, which are more likely to lose money.
  • Recommendations of illiquid securities that, since they are meant to be held long-term, can incur high fees for investors who attempt to cash out early.
  • A broker executing an excessive number of trades violates the requirement for quantitative suitability.

These requirements also apply to the overall investment strategy a broker recommends or enacts. For instance, an investment strategy that over-concentrates the investor’s account in one stock or sector is likely unsuitable.

Investors may be able to recover losses caused by unsuitable investment or investment strategy recommendations by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
