According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s BrokerCheck report on Jeffrey Fladell, he has been the subject of six customer complaints, a regulatory action and a criminal matter. He is accused of violating securities laws such as churning and excessive trading, making unsuitable investment recommendations, negligence and overconcentrating positions, among other claims. In many of the claims, the customer alleged that he was concentrated in municipal bonds or other debt obligations and suffered losses. One investor alleged damages of $1 million as a result of concentration in municipal bonds that were inconsistent with the client’s objective of principal protection. Brokers such as Fladell have a responsibility to make investment recommendations to clients by taking into account their net worth, investment objectives, age and investment sophistication. If they do not, their firms can be held liable for investment losses.
