On February 19, 2021, an investor alleged that Jared Roskelley recommended unsuitable REIT investments and an unsuitable variable annuity.

Previous Investor Allegation Regarding a REIT

There is another dispute that references a REIT on Jared Roskelley’s record. On July 28, 2017, an investor alleged that Roskelley recommended an unsuitable Phillips Edison REIT. The investor stated that the REIT was illiquid, which does not fit the investor’s needs. The investor sought $40,000 but the firm denied the dispute. Firms can deny disputes without facing FINRA arbitration, and investors can still pursue arbitration following a denial.

1031 Exchange Disputes and Regulatory Action

On June 16, 2010, an investor alleged that Roskelley engaged in negligence, negligent supervision, and misrepresentation. These allegations stemmed from a 1031 exchange and an investment in an alleged Ponzi scheme. The investor sought $1,100,000; the dispute settled for $240,000. You can read a copy of the arbitration award here.

Roskelley also has a regulatory action on his record. On December 1, 2005, Jared Roskelley entered in an Acceptance, Waiver, & Consent agreement (AWC) with the National Association of Securities Dealers in which he consented to the findings that he had participated in a private securities transaction without providing written notice to his firm. This transaction involved a 1031 exchange that Roskelley recommended to his clients. When brokers engage in private securities transactions, they are required to notify their firms of their proposed role in the transaction and disclose any selling compensation they might receive. As part of the AWC, Roskelley consented to an eight-month suspension and a $22,713 fine. You can read a copy of the AWC here.
