FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to recommend securities that sufficiently suit an investor’s financial goals. Brokers must take into account an investor’s tax status, risk tolerance, and other information described in their profile.

Brokers who execute an excessive number of trades (also known as churning) generate trading fees and commissions that can cut into an investor’s returns so severely that the client doesn’t make any profit.

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

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of manipulative, deceptive, and otherwise fraudulent methods to influence the purchase and sale of securities. Misrepresenting an investment’s potential returns, risks, or other features violates this rule.

FINRA Rule 2010

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade.

What qualifies as broker negligence?

Brokers may act in many negligent ways, ranging from recommending unsuitable investments to executing unauthorized trades. Investors who have lost money through broker negligence may be able to recover their funds by seeking out FINRA arbitration.
