The current disputes are not the only time that Furniss has been accused of wrongdoing. His report indicates that in 2017 a matter was settled for $150,000.

Furniss has worked for Lincoln Financial Advisors Corporation since 2005.
Unsuitable investment recommendations are those investment recommendations that are inappropriate under industry standards to make to an investor because they are not in the best interest of the client. A broker or financial advisor is required to complete due diligence of both the investment and the client before making investment recommendations to a client. They must review their situation to determine whether the investment is appropriate for their portfolio.
Information such as the client’s income, investment knowledge, risk tolerance, age, and future financial needs all must be taken into consideration before a broker makes a recommendation, particularly with alternative investments. If a broker makes investment recommendations that are not in your best interest, the investor may be entitled to damages through FINRA arbitration.
If you have investment losses related to a broker’s unsuitable recommendations, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Contact our office at (614) 532-4576 to discuss your legal options directly with an attorney.
