FINRA Rules 2111, 2020, And 2010
FINRA Rule 2111 (Suitability)
Suitability is the term used to describe an ethical, enforceable standard for investments that brokers must uphold. An investment is only considered “suitable” if it meets the suitability criteria outlined in FINRA Rule 2111. FINRA Rule 2111 states that investments must take an investor’s financial goals and risk tolerance into consideration.
FINRA Rule 2020 (Misrepresentation)
A misrepresentation is a false or misleading statement, while an omission is the failure to disclose essential facts. Negligently or intentionally making misrepresentations or failing to disclose any material information can result in losses and damages to an investor’s portfolio.
FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokerage firms and stockbrokers from making material misrepresentations of fact to induce an investor in connection with the sale or purchase of an investment. Misrepresentation also violates The Securities Act of 1933, which prohibits deceit, misrepresentation, and other fraud in the sale of securities.
Jean Josse’s alleged conduct is also unethical and violates FINRA Rule 2010, which states that brokers must uphold the highest standards of commercial honor.
