According to BrokerCheck, three customers have recently come forward alleging that Kenahan made unsuitable investment recommendations and engaged in excessive trading, or "churning," while he worked at Merrill Lynch. The misconduct allegedly took place between December 2007 and February 2018.

Recover Your Losses Through Securities Arbitration

Brokers are obligated to make investment recommendations that are suitable for their clients. To be suitable, an investment must be consistent with the goals and objectives of the client. The client's needs including his or her net worth, life savings, age, investor experience, tax consequences, and other factors should be considered when determining whether an investment is suitable. Where an account has been churned or excessively traded, the activity is not suitable for anyone, regardless of their investment objectives.
