Gary Costello Unauthorized Trading Loss Recovery Options
Unauthorized trading occurs when a financial advisor buys or sells securities without prior consent from the investor. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and state securities laws prohibit unauthorized trading. Unless an investor has given the broker discretion to make trades in the account, the broker must first discuss all trades with the investor before executing them. Unauthorized trading can occur in many ways, including marking trades as unsolicited or getting a client to agree to an investment strategy without obtaining consent for each trade.
The remedies for unauthorized trading include compensatory damages, rescinding (unwinding) the unauthorized trades, or in some cases market-adjusted damages if the portfolio would have performed better had it not been for the unauthorized trading.
