What Is Securities Arbitration?
When you have been a victim of stockbroker negligence, misconduct, or investment fraud, you may be struggling to cope with the financial loss. Fortunately, you may be able to recover these losses through arbitration.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is responsible for ensuring that reckless or incompetant brokers, firms, and financial advisors are brought to justice and compelled to repay you for the losses you endured. This can include many different types of securities fraud such as:
- Unauthorized trading
- Selling away
- Lack of diversification
- Investment fraud
- Failure to supervise
Evidence to Support Your FINRA Arbitration Complaint
If you decide to move forward with FINRA arbitration, you must be able to provide the arbitrators with evidence to support your claims. Your case will be heard by one arbitrator if your losses were less than $100,000 or a panel of three arbitrators if your losses exceeded $100,000.
Because the respondent will also be attempting to clear their name, the more evidence you have to support your complaint, the better. Some of the most common types of evidence presented in FINRA arbitration include:
- Bank statements
- Financial records
- Witness statements
- Text conversations or emails
- Recorded conversations
- Confidential documents
