The FINRA claim seeks damages between $100,000 and $500,000.

It is alleged that both Centaurus Financial and J.P. Turner & Co. LLC failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments prior to recommending them to these particular investors. Brokerage firms are required to supervise their financial advisors to ensure that they are complying with FINRA rules. If it can be determined that the advisor violated FINRA rules and the employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Matthew Hawkins has been the broker of record for at least four (4) customer disputes for similar allegations and Cindy Chiellini currently has eighteen (18) customer disputes on her broker record- many with similar issues.

Before recommending an investment, a broker-dealer has a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in the investment and to perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.
