Did John Kavaler Cause You Investment Losses?

John Kavaler, a former Registered Representative with the Charlestown, MA branch of Ameriprise Financial Services, Inc., submitted an AWC to FINRA for allegedly making unsuitable ETN recommendations to his customers.  FINRA’s findings alleged that John David Kavaler, recommended that several customers invest in a highly volatile Exchange-Traded Note (ETN), the VXX.  According to FINRA, the VXX ETN is a complicated and risky investment which is unsuitable for unsophisticated investors. Mr. Kavaler, however, recommended that his customers invest in the VXX ETN without adequately explaining the risks involved or the nature of the investment.  According to FINRA, based on Mr. Kavaler’s recommendations, two of his customers bought 3,500 shares of VXX for a total investment of nearly $58,000.  These two customers suffered losses of more than $28,000.  FINRA’s findings also state that another customer invested over $290,000 on shares of VXX and ultimately lost over $114,000.  John Kavaler was assessed a deferred fine of $15,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member for three months.
