Investor Alleges Vincent Catalano Recommended Unsuitable Investment

Vincent Catalano (CRD #: 5238819), a broker registered with Cambridge Investment Research, is the subject of a pending dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on July 6, 2022. Read on if you have questions about Vincent Catalano’s conduct as a broker.

Investor Dispute

In a dispute filed on March 28, 2022, an investor alleged that Vincent Catalano recommended an oil and gas investment that was unsuitable for the client. This dispute is currently pending.

Energy investments are often unsuitable because they involve a high degree of risk. 

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires that brokers tailor their investment recommendations to an investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the information contained in an investor’s profile, such as their tax status, age, and risk tolerance.

Investors who feel their losses were caused by unsuitable investment recommendations may be able to recover their funds by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
