How Do Stock Losses Occur?
It is normal for the stock market to fluctuate, and when that happens, losses are not uncommon. What is not acceptable are losses caused by misconduct or fraud. It is more common than you might think for financial advisors to prioritize their own interests over those of their clients. There are several different ways that this can occur, but some of the more common types of stockbroker misconduct include:
- Unsuitable investment recommendations
- Unauthorized trading
- Lack of portfolio diversification
- Failure to supervise
- Ponzi schemes
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Selling away
These are just a few of the different types of ways that financial advisors can wrong investors. If your stock losses were caused by any of these types of misconduct, you may be able to recover your losses in FINRA arbitration.
FINRA Arbitration for Stock Market Losses
FINRA arbitration is designed to help investors who have lost a significant amount of money due to the negligence or misconduct of their financial advisor, stockbroker, or brokerage firm. FINRA arbitration is often a good option for those who hope to recover their losses in a timely manner, as most FINRA arbitration claims can be resolved in as few as 18 months.
In your hearing, you will have the opportunity to plead your case, and your broker will have to explain their reasoning for making the investment recommendations that caused your losses. If the arbitrators determine that misconduct occurred, they can order your stockbroker to compensate you accordingly.
It is important to note that arbitration decisions cannot be appealed. This means that if the arbitrators determined you were not taken advantage of by your broker, you cannot appeal their decision. However, due to the fact that arbitration can often be resolved more quickly than going to court, it is often seen as a more attractive option.
