Articles Tagged with Minish Joe Hede

Minish Joe Hede (CRD# 2389098) has been with Paulson Investment Company since 2013. In a regulatory action from 2017, FINRA found that Hede failed to respond to a FINRA request for information. Hede also failed to request termination of his earlier suspension within the allotted time. As a result, FINRA permanently barred Hede from being associated with any FINRA member firm. Hede was also discharged from Paulson Investment Company in 2017. The firm terminated Hede after a customer filed a complaint alleging negligence, fraud, and unjust enrichment. The firm also stated that Hede failed to comply with its internal investigation into the matter.

Hede has also been the subject of several customer disputes. In one dispute pending from 2017, the Claimant alleges fraud and unjust enrichment in connection with the sale of promissory notes; the Claimant alleges damages of $1,000,000. In another complaint from 1999, the Claimant alleged unauthorized use of margin trading by Hede. The case settled for over $6,000.

FINRA requires its members to “have a reasonable basis to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy” is suitable for a customer given their individual needs. FINRA also requires that its members refrain from engaging in fraudulent or deceptive practices with their customers.
