FINRA Arbitration can help you recover your losses

FINRA sanctions are designed to protect investors and maintain standards in the industry. However, those who already have suffered losses must find a way to recover them. FINRA’s Arbitration Process comes into play here.

Investors who feel they have lost money due to the misconduct by a broker or brokerage firm may file a claim for arbitration with FINRA. This process is designed to settle disputes between investors, brokers and brokerage firms.

Arbitration processes are typically faster and less formal. The arbitration process involves an hearing in which both parties make their case before a panel arbitrators who will then render a decision. The broker or brokerage company may be ordered by the arbitrator to pay damages if the decision is favorable to the investor.

Investors are advised to note:

  • Arbitration has legal force. Once a decision has been made, it cannot be appealed.
  • Investors may choose to have an attorney represent them, but this is not mandatory.
  • Investors must file their claims as soon as they can, because there are deadlines for filing them.

FINRA’s Arbitration Process is a vital tool for investors who want to recover their losses, and hold brokers and brokerage companies accountable for the actions they took.
