Unsuitable Recommendations Are Grounds For Recovery
Unsuitable recommendations of securities by a broker is the most common form of investment securities fraud misconduct. It is the duty of a broker to make investment recommendations to customers that are consistent with the customer’s risk tolerance, needs, and investment objectives. An investment may be unsuitable if a customer does not have the financial ability to incur the risk associated with a particular investment. The factors that determine unsuitable investments are the financial situation of the investor, risk tolerance, stated objectives, age, experience, liquidity needs, time horizon, and the existing holdings of the investor.
Stockbrokers have the duty to know their customers and to ensure that each recommended investment is suitable for that customer. If you lost money in an unsuitable investment the broker may be responsible.
