FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires that brokers tailor their investment recommendations to an investor’s profile, which describes characteristics such as their age, tax status, and investment goals.

Investment strategies must also meet the requirements of suitability. A common example of an unsuitable investment strategy is overconcentration, which can expose an investor to excessive risk.

Investors who rely on their broker for recommendations may be able to recoup their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
