In December 2016 FINRA sanctioned Scott Goldman following allegations he “recommended an investment strategy to an elderly customer that was unsuitable because it unduly concentrated her in risky, leveraged precious metal products.” FINRA’s findings also stated that “the customer received fund prospectus but was not adequately informed of the investment components in that she did not understand the nature of and market risk associated with it.” Mr. Goldman was issued a 20-day suspension and a fine of $10,000.
