Broker Investigation: Jeffrey Cohen of Moloney Securities 

On June 5, 2023, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) reportedly barred financial advisor Jeffrey Cohen (CRD #2528929) from the securities industry. 

FINRA, the self-regulator who oversees brokers and brokerage firms, was reportedly investigating Cohen concerning allegations regarding the sale of securities through one of his prior Outside Business Activities in an arbitration matter disclosed on his Form U4.  

FINRA’s Form U4, collects information about an individual’s personal background, employment history, disciplinary history, and regulatory disclosures.  The regulator was reportedly investigating Cohen’s involvement in the sale of the securities noted in a customer arbitration. On March 20, 2023, FINRA sent a request to Cohen for information. By refusing to produce the information or documents as requested Cohen violated FINRA Rules 8210 and 2010.

Investigating Claims

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving Moloney Securities and its alleged failure to supervise former broker Jeffrey Cohen.  

When brokers violate securities laws, such as making unsuitable investments, the brokerage firm they are working with may be liable for investment losses through FINRA Arbitration. FINRA arbitration is generally a faster and less expensive alternative to traditional litigation.     

If your broker has defrauded you, you may be able to file a claim with FINRA to seek resolution through arbitration. FINRA arbitration can be a complex and technical process, and having an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about securities law can greatly increase your chances of success.
