Michael Rubel – Financial Advisor/Broker Suspended by FINRA | Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
Michael Rubel is a licensed financial advisor with B Riley Wealth Management. Michael Rubel was a previously licensed financial advisor with Capitol Securities Management. FINRA reports that Michael Rubel will be suspended from the securities industry for 45 days in October 2020.
According to FINRA Allegations:
Rubel consented to the sanction and to the entry of findings that he engaged in an unsuitable pattern of short-term trading of unit investment trusts (UITs) in customer accounts. The findings stated that Rubel recommended that certain of his customers roll over UITs more than 100 days prior to maturity, on approximately 276 occasions. Indeed, although his customers’ UITs typically had a 24-month maturity period, Rubel recommended that they sell their UITs after holding them for, on average, only 244 days, and, in some instances, use the proceeds to purchase a new UIT. Of the approximately 276 early rollovers recommended by Rubel, 13 were series-to-series rollovers. In other words, on those 13 occasions, Rubel recommended that his customers roll over a UIT before its maturity date in order to purchase a subsequent series of the same UIT, which, as noted above, generally had the same or similar investment objectives and strategies as the prior series. Rubel’s recommendations caused his customers to incur unnecessary sales charges and were unsuitable in view of the frequency and cost of the transactions.
