Soreide Law Files a FINRA Arbitration Against Cetera for Structured Linked Note

Cloud PRWire

The Tennessee client, represented by Soreide Law Group, asked his Cetera broker to put his money into a “safe bond”. The Cetera broker sold the client a JP Morgan Chase Financial Note linked to ARKK, which is the ARK Innovation ETF that plummeted over 60% year to date. Clearly, the client had no idea that the “bond” sold to him could be more volatile than the stock market. Had the client not been misled into the risk of this structured product or “linked note” the client would have never agreed to purchase it. Linked notes are complex investments that are a hybrid between a bond and the underlying common stock they are linked to. Many investors don’t understand how the notes performance is tied to the common stocks performance.

FINRA regulates all brokers and sends out notices to their members. FINRA sent out in FINRA Notice 05-59 “Guidance for the sale of Structured Products” which requires brokers when selling structured products to: (1) provide balanced disclosure in promotional efforts; (2) ascertain accounts eligible to purchase structured products; (3) deal fairly with customers with regard to derivative products; (4) perform a reasonable-basis suitability determination; (5) perform a customer-specific suitability determination; (6) supervise and maintain a supervisory control system; and (7) train associated persons. It is clear from the number of FINRA lawsuits filed that many brokers are not following these 7 steps required before selling structured products.
