FINRA Rule 2111 – Unsuitable, Illiquid Investments

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investor profiles have information on the investor’s age, risk tolerance, tax status, investing experience, and financial goals. Brokers must also consider the investment time horizon and the investor’s liquidity needs – illiquid, long-term investments often do not suit a client’s best interests. 

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover losses from unsuitable investment recommendations by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
