FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires financial advisors to have a "reasonable basis" to believe that a recommended transaction or investment strategy is suitable for their client. Investments may be unsuitable because they do not align with the investor's financial goals, investing experience, age, or risk tolerance.

  • Investments can be unsuitable because they are high risk and likely to lose money.
  • Securities may also be unsuitable because they are illiquid, meaning that they are meant to be held for an extended period of time and may be costly to cash out.
  • Securities must also be quantitatively suitable, meaning that brokers executed an excessive number of trades.
  • These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves.

A violation of FINRA Rule 2111 is also a violation of FINRA Rule 2010, which requires member firms and their associated persons to "observe high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade."
