Dually Registered Rep. Faces Multiple FINRA Arbitration Claims by Investors
Kerri Suzanne Jamison, a Newbridge Securities Corp. and Newbridge Financial Services Group stockbroker, is currently the subject of pending complaints by customers who claim they lost money because of investment recommendations she made.
Jamison, who has worked under the names Kerri Lasegue and Kerri Romero, is one of several of the firm’s registered representatives to become the subject of stockbroker fraud claims in recent years. According to her BrokerCheck record, Jamison has been named in four customer disputes. One was settled, and three, which were filed this year, are still pending:
- The latest one, submitted in April, alleges breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence. The customer is seeking $99K in damages.
- A customer dispute from February is requesting $200K in damages. It alleges material misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, and unsuitable investment recommendations.
- A complaint brought in January is seeking $99K in damages. It alleges breach of contract, negligence, and breach of fiduciary duty.
With 18 years in the industry, Jamison worked as a registered broker for eight other firms, including Associated Planners Investment Advisory Inc., Associated Securities Corp., Linsco/Private Ledger Corp., and Washington Square Securities Inc. She has been with Newbridge for over nine years.
Stockbroker Fraud: The Importance Of Due Diligence
Brokers have a duty to conduct the proper due diligence to make sure an investment is suitable before recommending the security to any customer.
Suitability depends on many factors, including the investor’s age, risk tolerance level, investment goals, investing experience, financial situation, and portfolio. When a failure to provide appropriate recommendations leads to investment losses, that customer may have grounds for filing a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration claim to pursue damages.
