FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires that brokers tailor their investment recommendations to an investor’s profile, which describes their risk tolerance, age, and other characteristics.

Investment strategies must also meet the requirements of suitability. A common example is overconcentration, which can expose an investor to an unsuitable degree of risk.
