Kinan Nimeh is a New Jersey based securities broker. He has worked in the securities industry for seventeen years. During his career, he has been registered with eight different securities firms.

The Allegations

  • In November 2009, a customer alleged that Kinan Nimeh engaged in unauthorized trading. This case was settled for $7,000 in damages.
  • In December 2011, a customer alleged that Kinan Nimeh engaged in reckless trading and charged them excessive markups, fees and margin interest. This case was settled for $25,000 in damages.
  • In April 2015, a customer alleged that Kinan Nimeh recommended unsuitable investments, excessively traded their account, executed unauthorized trades, and engaged in excessive margin trading. This case was settled for $20,000 in damages.
  • In September 2017, Kinan Nimeh was officially sanctioned by FINRA. The findings in this matter state that he purchased highly unsuitable leveraged exchange traded funds in customer accounts.
