FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to determine whether an investment fits their client’s financial goals by examining the characteristics described in an investor’s profile. Investors’ profiles contain the following information:

  • Age
  • Financial goals
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
  • Investing experience
  • Tax status

Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can pursue FINRA arbitration and potentially recover their losses.

FINRA Rule 2020

FINRA Rule 2020 bans the use of manipulative, deceptive, or otherwise fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. Misrepresenting or omitting information about an investment’s risks, requirements, or other features violates this rule.
