For example, FINRA Rule 3240 governs borrowing and lending arrangements between registered investment advisors (RIAs) and customers of their member firm. For the most part, this type of borrowing and lending is disfavored. Indeed, it is strictly prohibited unless certain conditions are met. FINRA routinely bars members who improperly take loans or otherwise takes money from customers. However, in most cases, investors hire investment fraud attorneys to pursue their losses against the advisor and/or the brokerage firm through Finra arbitration to recover those losses. In many cases, brokerage firms may be held liable for failing to supervise the financial advisor or other negligence. Silver Law Group has represented investors in FINRA arbitration to recover money from brokers who improperly borrow money from customers, invest customers in personal investments or projects and for breach of fiduciary duty when stockbrokers improperly serve as trustees or beneficiaries of a will or trust.
