FINRA Lawsuit filed against UBS involving Unsuitable Investments
The White Law Group announces the filing of FINRA claim against UBS Financial Services involving unsuitable real estate investment recommendations.
The White Law Group has submitted a FINRA Arbitration claim on behalf of an Ohio resident, alleging violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision. The claim alleges that UBS Financial Services unsuitably invested its client in a real estate investment. The FINRA claim seeks damages in an amount between $500,000 and $1,000,000.
It is further alleged that the financial advisor that was involved with the accounts at issue is Damian Baird. The claim alleges that Baird failed to perform the necessary due diligence on this investment prior to recommending it to this investor.
According to D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, “It is possible that many more investors have suffered devastating losses due to the broker-dealer’s failure to supervise and don’t realize they have recovery options.”
Brokerage firms are required to supervise their advisors to ensure that they are complying with FINRA rules. If it can be determined that the financial advisor violated FINRA rules and the employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
