FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must use the information in an investor’s profile, such as their risk tolerance, age, and tax status when making recommendations.

These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves. For instance, an investment strategy might be unsuitable if the securities are overconcentrated in a particular stock or sector.

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