Imagine strolling into an art gallery, captivated by the masterpieces hanging on the walls. You’re approached by an art dealer who persuades you to buy a particular painting, promising it will increase in value over time. You trust their expertise, invest your hard-earned money, and wait for the promised returns. But instead, the value of the painting plummets, leaving you with a significant loss. This scenario is a metaphor for what happened recently to some investors who trusted a financial advisor with their investments.
On May 13, 2022, a customer dispute was settled involving James Fay, a broker affiliated with Cambridge Investment Research, Inc. and Cambridge Investment Research Advisors, Inc. The claimant alleged that an investment recommendation was made with the primary intention of generating high commissions and fees. Consequently, the claimants were deprived of the ability to generate reasonable returns that would have been received in a diversified portfolio. The settlement amount was a staggering $295,000.
What is FINRA and How Can It Help?
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is a non-governmental organization that regulates member brokerage firms and exchange markets in the United States. They help protect investors by ensuring the broker-dealer industry operates fairly and honestly. But how can FINRA assist you in such a situation? The answer is through FINRA arbitration.
Just like a court, FINRA arbitration is a dispute resolution process where parties present their case before a neutral third party (the arbitrator). The arbitrator then makes a decision that is final and binding. But unlike a court, the process is less formal, faster, and typically less expensive. This makes it an attractive option for investors seeking to recover their losses.
