Mariner Wealth’s Jay Schechter Receives Mutual Fund Complaint
A recent investor complaint against Coral Gables, Florida financial advisor Jay Schechter (CRD# 4019220) alleges that his investment advice resulted in losses. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a broker with MSEC and an investment advisor with Mariner Wealth Advisors.
Mr. Schechter’s BrokerCheck report discloses one investor complaint. Filed in July 2022, it alleges that as a representative of Mariner Wealth Advisors, he recommended an unsuitable mutual fund investment and other unsuitable “investment decisions.” It alleges further that the firm failed to supervise and conduct due diligence into the product. (More information about FINRA’s suitability rule, which stipulates that brokers may recommend only investments and strategies that are appropriate for their customers’ objectives and backgrounds, based on reasonable diligence into the investment and/or strategy, is available here.) The pending complaint seeks damages of $98,722.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Jay Schechter holds 19 years of securities industry experience. Based in Coral Gables, Florida, he has been a broker with MSEC and an investment advisor with Mariner Wealth Advisors since 2019.
