Did Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation Cause You Investment Losses?

Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation of Fort Wayne, Indiana submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver and Consent (AWC) to the Financial Industry National Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for allegedly failing to implement and enforce reasonable supervisory procedures related to the recommendation of private placement variable annuities. FINRA found representatives from two of LFA’s branch offices recommended customers to invest in a hedge fund that engaged in a complex option trading strategy. FINRA alleged that the complexity of the hedge fund exposed the LFA clients to a high degree of financial risk. LFA however approved the recommendations and 25 firm customers invested approximately $11.7 million in the hedge fund. In 2010, the hedge fund was shut down. Without admitting or denying the findings, Lincoln Financial Advisors agreed to the FINRA sanctions and was censured and ordered to pay a $150,000 fine.
