FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to take into account investors’ financial goals when recommending investments. Brokers must examine investors’ profiles, which describe their risk tolerance, financial goals, age, and other relevant information. 

  • Trades must be quantitatively suitable, meaning that the total trading activity must be appropriate for an investor’s goals. Excessive trading generates fees that cut into clients’ returns.
  • Overconcentration of securities in a certain stock or sector is a common investment strategy that is unsuitable for most investors.

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