Massachusetts Failure to Diversify Securities Account Attorney
Massachusetts has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to mismanage securities and other investment accounts by failing to employ sound asset allocation and diversification investment principles and engage in all sorts of misconduct which violates Federal and Massachusetts securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, Robert Stein, a registered representative with Capitol Securities Management, Inc., submitted an AWC to FINRA for making unsuitable reverse convertible note (RCN) recommendations and purchases in the accounts of eight customers. FINRA found that Robert Gerald Stein of Sudbury, MA, recommended and effected 24 purchases of RCNs in 8 customer accounts. The customers were primarily over 60 years old and had conservative investment objectives. According to FINRA, Mr. Stein’s recommendations and purchases totaled approximately $4 million in the 8 customers’ accounts. Moreover, all of the accounts were heavily concentrated in RCNs, constituting a substantial portion of their net worth. Mr. Stein’s recommendations were unsuitable for his customers in light of their investment goals, ages, and net worth. Consequently, he was fined $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in any capacity for three months.Experienced Lawyers Who Handle Over-Concentration Of Securities Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Massachusetts and Nationwide
Are you a Massachusetts investor who has suffered significant losses in your stock brokerage and investment accounts? Did your Massachusetts stockbroker or investment advisor over-concentrate your securities account investments in a single asset class of only equities, fixed income or real estate investments like REITs? Did your stockbroker or investment advisor only recommend that you invest in one sector like the oil and gas or one geographic area like Puerto Rico?
