Suitability Complaint Against Regal Wealth’s Andrew Pincus
Boca Raton and Florham Park broker Andrew Pincus allegedly recommended unsuitable transactions, according to a pending investor complaint. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is a representative of LPL Financial, doing business as Regal Wealth Advisors.
Mr. Pincus’s BrokerChek report discloses a single investor complaint. Filed in March 2022, it alleges unsuitable transactions involving real estate securities while he was a representative of Kestra Investment Services. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages that may exceed $5,000.
One of many investor protections is FINRA’s suitability standard. As established by FINRA Rule 2111, it requires brokers and firms to “have a reasonable basis to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy involving a security or securities is suitable for the customer, based on the information obtained through the reasonable diligence of the member or associated person to ascertain the customer’s investment profile..” Brokers who do not have that reasonable basis, or who recommendation transactions that aren’t suitable for their customers, are considered to have violated Rule 2111.
