What is Unsuitability?
“Unsuitability” is a term used to describe inappropriate recommendations and trades that are inconsistent with the customer’s goals and investment profile.
FINRA Rule 2111 states that a broker must consider their investor’s profile before they recommend investments. A customer’s investment profile consists of a wide range of individual characteristics, including the customer’s:
- Financial situation and needs
- Tax status
- Investment objectives
- Investment experience
- Risk tolerance
Brokers should take into account any goals their investor has expressed before making recommendations and make note if those preferences change over time. If an investor suffers financial losses because of an unsuitable recommendation, the broker’s firm may be liable for such losses.
