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.
Investment strategies must also be suitable for an investor. Over-concentration is often an unsuitable strategy for many investors because of the level of risk involved.
Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recoup their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
