FINRA Rule 2111 – Unsuitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investor profiles have information on the investor’s risk tolerance, tax status, and financial goals. Investments that do not take these factors into account may be unsuitable. Mutual funds that risk losing the principal investment are too risky for many institutional investors. 

FINRA Rule 2010

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Violations of FINRA Rule 2111 also violate this rule. 

Previous Investor Dispute 

There is a previous investor dispute on Eric Diamond’s BrokerCheck profile that alleges an unsuitable investment recommendation.
