CMD Investigating Claims Against Foothill Securities, Inc. for Unsuitable, Over-Concentration of Customer Accounts in REITs

Securities law firm Carmel, Milazzo & DiChiara LLP (CMD) is investigating claims against Foothill Securities, Inc. for failure to supervise and for  over-concentrating and recommending unsuitable REITs in customer accounts.

FINRA’s findings stated that Foothill Securities, Inc. maintained written guidelines for limiting customers’ investments in non-exchange-traded REITs and other non-liquid investments that stated that no single order in one non-liquid product should equal more than 10 percent of a customer’s investable net worth as of the time the order is placed, and that no order should cause a customer to have more than 20 percent of his or her investable net worth in non-liquid investments.  FINRA found that Foothill Securities, Inc.’s registered representatives recommended these illiquid, non-traded REITs to its customers that exceeded these concentration guidelines.

If you or someone you know lost money investing with Foothill Securities, Inc. you may be entitled to recover your investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
