Brooklyn, New York FINRA Securities Arbitration Lawyer

Did Jay Howard Bluestine Cause You Investment Losses? Jay Howard Bluestine of Brooklyn, New York was accessed a fine of $5,000 and suspended from association with any FINRA member in all capacities for a period of three months. The sanctions were based on findings that Howard accepted loans from a customer without seeking or obtaining approval in violation of FINRA Rules 3240 and 2010. The suspension was in effect from October 5, 2020, through January 4, 2021. In August 2011, Jay Howard Bluestine joined UBS Financial Services Inc. and was registered as a General Securities Representative. According to the FINRA findings, Bluestine accepted three loans from a customer totaling $300,000 without requesting or obtaining approval from his firm. The findings stated that the firms written procedures prohibited registered representatives from borrowing money from a customer without written approval. FINRA further stated that the customer loaned the money to Bluestine without documentation or understanding as to the duration or interest rate of the loan. In addition, Bluestine allegedly falsely attested on his firm’s annual compliance questionnaires that he had not borrowed money from any customer. Although Bluestine is not currently registered or associated with a FINRA member, he remains subject to FINRA’s jurisdiction. FINRA Rule 3240(a) provides that a registered representative may not borrow money from any customer unless his or her member firm has written procedures that allow for such borrowing and the borrowing arrangement meets certain other, specified conditions. If these requirements are met, FINRA Rule 3240(b) requires the registered representative to notify the member firm of the borrowing arrangement and obtain written pre-approval from the firm prior to borrowing from the customer, unless the customer is an immediate family member or financial institution, in which case other requirements apply. A violation of FINRA Rule 3240 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010. Do you need a New York FINRA Securities Arbitration Attorney?

Woodbury, New York Securities Lawyer For Structured Product Investment Dispute

Did Trident Partners Ltd. Cause You Investment Losses? Trident Partners Ltd. submitted a Letter of Acceptance, Waiver, and Consent (AWC) in which it has been censured and received a fine of $50,000 by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) for failing to properly supervise the sales and suitability of steepeners, a complex, structured product. According to FINRA’s findings, Trident Partners, headquarters in Woodbury, New York, failed to establish, maintain, and enforce a supervisory system to ensure that recommendations for its sale of steepeners were suitable.  Steepeners are complex, structured products that are typically longer-term notes and certificates of deposit with maturities ranging from 10 to 30 years and are callable by the issuers after a short, pre-specified time.  They pay higher interest rates, but if the steepener is not called after a year, the rates can fall as low as zero, earning no returns for the remainder of the term.  FINRA alleged that during the relevant period, steepeners were a significant part of Trident Partners’ business, with approximately 1,600 transactions accounting for at least 10% of commissions generated.  FINRA’s findings stated, Trident Partners’ supervisory system was unreasonable due to the following:  (1) there were no written supervisory procedures (WSPs) specific to steepeners;  (2) Trident Partners did not have a system in place to conduct due diligence and evaluate the steepeners it intended to sell;  (3) Trident Partners did not provide its representatives with training or guidance necessary to determine the risks and suitability of these complex products; and (4) Trident Partners did not use a supervisory system for monitoring suitability and over-concentration of these products in customer accounts.  Trident Partners, without admitting or denying FINRA’s findings, was censured and fined $50,000. Do You Need A Securities Lawyer For Structured Product Investment Dispute? New York has thousands of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices.  With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in Structured Products and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and New York securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.  Experienced Securities Attorneys For Investors With Structured Product Losses In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout New York and Nationwide. Structured products are complex investments and do not represent ownership of any portfolio of assets but rather are promises to pay made by the product issuers. If the issuer, like Lehman Brothers, goes bankrupt, the principal protected notes become worthless.  Structured notes with principal protection typically reflect the combination of a zero-coupon bond, which pays no interest until the bond matures, with an option or other derivative product whose payoff is linked to an underlying asset, index or benchmark.  In the past, they were only offered to sophisticated institutional investors in negotiated transactions. Today, more and more Structured Products are advertised to generate higher yields for income seeking retirees with promises of hedges to protect principal. The underlying asset, index or benchmark of Structured Products can vary widely from commonly cited market benchmarks to foreign equity indices, currencies, commodities, spreads between interest rates or “hybrid” baskets of various asset types which many stockbrokers do not fully understand and consequently misrepresent the risk associated with those investments. Did your New York stockbroker or investment advisor misrepresent or mislead you about the nature, mechanics or risks in making a Structured Product investment or make an unsuitable recommendation that you invest in a Structured Product or otherwise mismanage your investment account? If so, you need to hire an experienced, highly-rated and nationally recognized FINRA securities arbitration law attorney who understands these very complex and risky investments. You will also need an experienced lawyer who knows FINRA rules and procedures inside and out and how to handle these FINRA arbitration cases and other complex legal issues.  By hiring a top rated and highly successful lawyer like Robert Wayne Pearce with over 40 years of experience with Structured Products by practicing securities law on both sides of the table in FINRA arbitration proceedings, you will clearly see that Attorney Pearce doesn’t just handle cases—he aggressively represents investors and is one of the best attorneys to recover your investment losses in Structured Products and all types of stockbroker misconduct in FINRA arbitration proceedings!
