According to his BrokerCheck report, Jeremy Gottlieb is the subject of one customer complaint.

In May 2015, a customer alleged that Jeremy Gottlieb, while employed at Securities America and First Allied Securities, recommended and sold unsuitable investments, committed common law fraud, breached his fiduciary duty, acted negligently, and failed to supervise. The complaint settled in February 2016 for $16,200.

According to FINRA rules and federal securities law, brokers and investment advisers like Jeremy Gottlieb are beholden to a fiduciary duty that requires them to act only in the best interests of their clients. This means, for instance, that they can only recommend suitable investments that take into account the client’s investment goals, experience, and risk tolerance. Firms are not permitted to misrepresent or omit material facts related to an investment, as this might cause a customer to invest unsuitably. Brokers and firms that violate applicable rules and regulations may be subject to disciplinary action from FINRA, the Securities and Exchange Commission, or state authorities.
