Geraldine Gordon of Lexington, Kentucky Suspended by FINRA for Recommending “Speculative” Master Limited Partnership
Have you lost money with financial advisor Geraldine Gordon of Lexington, Kentucky? We are investigating allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Geraldine Gordon, an advisor at Ameriprise Financial Services. FINRA alleged that Gordon recommended that her customer invest $334,000, half of the customer’s liquid net worth, in a master limited partnership concentrated in the energy sector. FINRA alleged that this was an excessive concentration, considering that the prospectus of this master limited partnership considered the investment to be “speculative”. To settle these allegations, Gordon agreed to pay a fine of $7,500 and a 10-day suspension from the securities industry.
