FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to recommend securities that sufficiently suit an investor’s financial goals. Brokers must take into account the information described in an investor’s profile, such as the client’s age, tax status, and overall financial situation.

Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can pursue FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their losses.
