Mar 15, 2022 Misrepresentation

What is Misrepresentation?

Brokers are required to inform investors of all the material facts related to an investment. Material facts are any facts that might affect an investor’s decision to purchase a security, including any risks. They must also provide information about any potential fees or tax consequences. Failure to disclose this information is a violation of FINRA Rule 2020. Rule 2020 also prohibits omitting any material facts.
