Did Kishan Parikh Cause You Investment Losses?
Kishan Parikh of Jersey City, New Jersey was named a Respondent in a FINRA complaint alleging that he made unsuitable recommendations and excessively traded in his customers’ accounts in violation of FINRA Rules 2111 and 2010.
In May 2012, Kishan Parikh joined Aegis Capital Corp. while registered as a General Securities Representative. The firm later filed a Uniform Termination Notice for Securities Industry Registration (Form U5) reporting Parikh’s voluntary termination. According to the FINRA complaint, Kishan allegedly executed 442 trades with a principal value of approximately $31.1 million in five customers’ accounts. The FINRA allegations state that the excessive and unsuitable trading in the customers’ accounts resulted in annualized turnover rates ranging from 10.9 to 199.8 and annualized cost-to-equity ratios ranging from 27.5% to 59.7%. The complaint further states that Parikh’s alleged excessive and unsuitable trading caused combined losses of $33,000 while he received commission of at least $89,000.
FINRA Rule 2111(a) provides in pertinent part that “[a] member or an associated person must have a reasonable basis to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy involving a security or securities is suitable for the customer, based on the information obtained through the reasonable diligence of the member or associated person to ascertain the customer’s investment profile.” FINRA Rule 2010 requires registered representatives to “observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.”
