What is an Unsuitable Investment? 

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to recommend securities that adequately fit an investor’s financial goals. These profiles contain information such as investors’ age, risk tolerance, and investing experience

  • 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 intended to be held for an extended time, and investors may have to pay high fees to cash out.
  • Securities can be quantitatively unsuitable, which means that brokers execute an excessive number of trades.

These requirements apply to the overall investment strategy as well as the investments themselves. For instance, an investment strategy might be unsuitable if the securities are overconcentrated in a particular stock or sector.
