What Were the Accusations Against James Brown?

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is responsible for overseeing the activities of broker-dealers in the United States. One way that the congressionally-authorized non-profit organization helps to protect investors is by ensuring that investors receive a “complete disclosure” about the securities product before it is purchased. Making material omissions or misrepresentations is considered a FINRA violation. 

According to the BrokerCheck report of James Albert Brown Jr. (CRD# 1343396), a customer was incorrectly “told they could roll the Inherited IRA distribution back within 60 days” resulting in significant losses. The matter was settled for $12,185.00 in March 2022. 

What Experience Does James Brown Have?

Publicly available information indicates that James Albert Brown Jr. (Jim Brown, Jimmy Brown) has 37 years of experience. He is a currently registered broker and investment adviser with Edward Jones. He holds 19 state licenses and has passed four exams. 

What to Do If You Suspect Investment Fraud?

If you experienced losses due to investment fraud, you need to speak to an attorney. You might be entitled to financial recovery through arbitration or litigation. Without the help of an attorney, you might end up settling your claim for less than it is worth or for nothing at all. 

Common types of investment fraud and broker misconduct:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Misrepresentation
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Excessive trading
  • Churning
  • Overconcentration
  • Unsuitable recommendations
  • Failure to supervise

An attorney with extensive experience in investor claims can help you understand your rights and your legal options. It is important to act quickly as you may only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages.
