FINRA Rule 2111
FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to tailor their investment recommendations to suit investors’ profiles. These profiles contain information such as investors’ age, risk tolerance, and investment goals.
Brokers must also ensure that their overall trading activity suits their client’s profile by following the requirement for quantitative suitability. Excessive trading violates this requirement and racks up fees that reduce an investor’s returns.
Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations or their trading discretion can potentially recover their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
FINRA Rule 3110 and 3260
FINRA Rule 3110 requires firms to establish and enforce supervisory systems to maintain compliance with FINRA regulations.
Unauthorized trading violates FINRA Rule 3260, which restricts brokers from exercising trading discretion outside of pre-approved discretionary accounts. This rule also requires firms to regularly review discretionary accounts for excessive trading.
FINRA Rule 2020
FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokers from using deceptive, manipulative, and otherwise fraudulent tactics to influence the purchase and sale of securities. This includes the misrepresentation or omission of material facts related to investments, such as an investment’s fees, risks, or potential returns.
