In Mississippi, the state’s Securities Division is tasked with regulating securities professionals and the investments they sell. It is this division that enforces the Mississippi Securities Act and can bring administrative actions against violators.
Sometimes, such an action may result in a partial or full refund of losses suffered by an investor. However, if you want to maximize your chances of a financial recovery, your best bet is to retain the services of a savvy Mississippi securities fraud law firm that will zealously pursue your case for you while protecting your legal rights.
Investor fraud claims against a broker or investment advisor can be tough to prove. It may even seem that your losses are a result of market turbulence or adverse events when, in fact, they occurred because your registered financial representative recommended investments that were unsuitable for your portfolio or risk tolerance level, overconcentrated your account in too much of one particular security, failed to conduct the proper due diligence about an investment that later proved fraudulent, or breached their fiduciary duty to you in some other way.
Even if your broker-dealer was not aware of your registered representative's fraudulent or negligent actions, it was still the firm’s duty to properly supervise them and your account to make sure that your money was protected. When inadequate supervision enables fraud or carelessness that leads to investor losses, a brokerage firm can be held liable.Filing a FINRA Arbitration Claim
If you wish to recover damages, you will need to file a claim with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). A FINRA arbitration case is not a complaint that you should pursue without knowledgeable legal help.
