Recovering Losses with Finra Arbitration
For investors who find themselves in a similar situation, there is a potential avenue for recovering losses – FINRA arbitration. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States.
- FINRA arbitration is a faster and less expensive alternative to litigation.
- It involves a panel of arbitrators who listen to both parties, review evidence, and then make a decision.
- If the decision is in favor of the investor, the broker and their firm may be required to compensate for the losses and pay damages.
It’s important to note that not all losses are eligible for recovery. The investment must have been unsuitable, and the broker must have failed in their duty to recommend suitable investments. In the case of Joseph Latour, these are the allegations that are currently under investigation.
Investors entrust their hard-earned money to brokers and investment advisors, expecting them to act in their best interest. When this trust is violated, it’s crucial that investors know their rights and the avenues available for recovering their losses. The case of Joseph Latour and his client serves as a reminder of the importance of suitability in investment recommendations and the role of FINRA arbitration in resolving disputes.
