FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires that brokers tailor their investment recommendations to investors’ profiles. These profiles contain information about investors’ risk tolerance, tax status, age, and other characteristics.

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration.

What are structured products?

Structured products (also called structured notes) are a complex type of security consisting of a bond and a derivative element. The performance of that element—which may be futures, options, or swaps—determines the investor’s returns once the product matures.

This complexity can make structured products difficult to evaluate. If you think your losses are the result of an unsuitable structured product, you can pursue FINRA arbitration and potentially recover your money.
