FINRA Rule 2020 makes it illegal for brokerage firms and stockbrokers to make any material misrepresentations of facts when selling investments. The Securities Act of 1933 also specifically prohibits deceitful, fraudulent practices in connection with sales.
FINRA Rule 2111 – Suitability
FINRA Rule 2111 requires that brokers recommend suitable investments. In general, suitability can be determined from an investor’s individual profile, which includes information on the investor’s risk tolerance and financial goals.
James Szeszulski’s alleged conduct is also unethical and violates FINRA Rule 2010, which states the brokers must uphold the highest standards of commercial honor.
