FINRA Rule 3260
Unauthorized trading violates FINRA Rule 3260, which restricts brokers from exercising their trading discretion beyond pre-approved discretionary accounts. Both the firm and client must provide approval before discretionary trading can occur.
FINRA Rule 2111
FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ profiles, which contain information about clients’ age, tax status, and financial goals.
Trading activity can also be quantitatively unsuitable, meaning that the broker executed an excessive number of trades, racking up trading fees and commissions that reduce the client’s returns.
Investors who rely on their broker for recommendations may be able to recoup their losses through FINRA arbitration.
What qualifies as broker negligence?
Brokers may act in many negligent ways, including by recommending unsuitable investments, misrepresenting material facts, or failing to supervise other brokers.
