What is a Misrepresentation?

Misrepresentation is a common problem in the securities industry. It usually occurs when an investment broker makes false or misleading statements about a financial product in an effort to persuade their customer to invest. 

Misrepresentations and omissions concerning material facts in investment recommendations deprive investors of the information they need to assess risks associated with a particular investment.

You may pursue a FINRA arbitration claim against a brokerage firm or its broker if: 

  • The broker intentionally made inaccurate statements or failed to disclose the material facts regarding the investment.
  • The broker made unrealistic projections for future yields. 
  • The broker intentionally failed to conduct adequate due diligence concerning the investment.

FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokerage firms and stockbrokers from making material misrepresentations or inducing people into buying investments with false statements about their potential benefits. 

Losses that can be attributed to a stockbroker's material misrepresentations of facts may result in a viable securities arbitration claim for damages.
