Jennifer J. Trowbridge, from in or about February 2010 to March 2011, allegedly recommended a series of mutual fund switches in seven customer accounts without having proper and reasonable grounds for believing that such transactions were suitable for those investors in view of the nature of their recommended transactions, how often they executed transactions, and the transaction costs incurred, according to the AWC.

On at least 29 occasions, the AWC further alleges, Trowbridge recommended that the customers purchase Class A mutual funds, for which they paid commissions and front-end sales charges. She then recommended that the customers sell said Class A mutual funds within only one month to thirteen months after purchasing them.

As a result of her alleged misconduct, Trowbridge is facing a suspension from associating with any FINRA member firm in any and all capacities for a period of two months, and a $ 10,000 fine from FINRA, the AWC notes.
