You might have found yourself in the position of trusting a financial advisor to give you sound advice but then finding out that it was not what you expected. Like a New Jersey client who discovered that the transactions recommended were excessive and unsuitable, resulting in a substantial loss, have you also experienced this? You’re not the only one. There is a bright side.
What happened in New Jersey?
In the case at hand, a New Jersey client alleges that Scott Nash, a former financial advisor of Janney and Merrill Lynch, recommended unsuitable, excessive, and unspecified transactions between 2018 and 2022. A staggering loss of over $216,208 was the result. These situations can be disastrous, but there are ways to recover.
