Erez Law is currently investigating Newbridge Securities Corporation financial advisor John Forrester (CRD# 728188) regarding energy sector losses. Forrester has been registered with Newbridge Securities Corporation in Boca Raton, Florida since 2010.
According to public records, a former client filed a FINRA arbitration against Newbridge Securities Corporation, alleging misconduct that resulted in financial losses. The elderly female was a client of Forrester, and he was not named in the lawsuit. According to the lawsuit filed, Forrester recommended the former client buy a speculative private placement in Hardrock Exploration, which has since gone bankrupt, as well as investments in Salient MLP, Virnetx, TNP Strategy Fund, and CVR Refining, all securities tied to the high-risk energy sector. At the time of investment, Forrester told the client that the investment was soli and would generate a steady stream of income her way.
According to public records related to this lawsuit, Newbridge Securities Corporation is accused of breach of contract, negligence, failure to supervise, breach of fiduciary duty, and violation of FINRA rules.
Forrester has been the subject of three customer complaints between 1993 and 2008, according to his CRD report, all of which were settled.
Pursuant to FINRA Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities during the time the broker is registered with the firm. Therefore, Newbridge Securities Corporation may be liable for investment or other losses suffered by Forrester’s customers.
