HENRY GRINBERG Sell You Unsuitable Investments?

Soreide Law Group is reviewing possible claims of unsuitability against Morgan Stanley general securities representative Henry Grinberg (CRD#: 4605039, Aventura, Florida). Namely, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) BrokerCheck shows that Grinberg voluntarily resigned from Morgan Stanley after the brokerage firm accused him of noncompliance. More importantly, at least three clients have come forward with allegations suggesting Grinberg sold unsuitable investments. Here is a summary of the complaints:

May 6, 2016 Dispute Suggests Henry Grinberg Sold Unsuitable Investments

 

A Morgan Stanley Smith Barney client brought an investment dispute on May 6, 2016 concerning Henry Grinberg. Supposedly, from 2014 to 2016, Grinberg made unsuitable stock trades. Morgan Stanley suggested that the client alleged additional misconduct concerning the investments; however, the firm omitted the specific allegations. Eventually, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney denied the client’s allegations.

Morgan Stanley Client Dispute Indicates Grinberg Potentially Sold Unsuitable ETFS, Structured Products

 

Evidently, a second Morgan Stanley Smith Barney client contested Henry Grinberg’s sales practices. Supposedly, Grinberg sold structured products and ETFs which were perhaps too risky for the client. Grinberg potentially had no reasonable basis to believe that the investments were the right fit for the client. However, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney denied the client claim.

FINRA Rules On Suitability

 

FINRA requires brokers to have a “reasonable basis” to believe an investment strategy or recommended transaction is suitable. Brokers must consider the client’s investment profile, which includes the client’s financial situation, age, tax status, investment experience, investment objectives, time horizon, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs. Brokers violate FINRA Rule 2111 when they make unsuitable recommendations. Investors can also sue a broker to recover investment losses caused by the broker’s unsuitable recommendations.
