What is a Margin Account? 

Margin accounts use money borrowed from the securities firm to buy more shares for investors. The use of borrowed money increases the risk. Investors are required to have a certain amount of money in their account or they could trigger a margin call. If an investor cannot pay the money to cover the margin call, the broker may liquidate securities in their account. 

What is Overconcentration? 

Overconcentration happens when a broker places too much of an investor’s portfolio into one stock or asset. This lack of diversification exposes the investor to unnecessary risk and violates FINRA Rule 2111, which defines suitable investments.
