Did PHX’s Steros Christoforou Recommend Unsuitable Investment?

An investor complaint against Fort Lauderdale financial advisor Steros Christoforou (CRD# 4407397) alleges that his advice resulted in six-figure damages. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is currently registered as a broker with PHX Financial.

Mr. Christoforou’s BrokerCheck report discloses one investor complaint. Filed in April 2023, it alleges that as a representative of PHX Financial, he made unsuitable investment recommendations involving a non-public traded equity. The pending complaint alleges damages of $100,000.

More information about FINRA Rule 2111, which stipulates that brokers must “have a reasonable basis to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy” is suitable for the customer they’re recommending it to, is available here. Investors should be aware that financial advisors who provide unsuitable investment recommendations may be liable in the event of losses.
