Puerto Rico Securities

Puerto Rico’s financial woes have been well-documented. Until recently, the U.S. territory had a national debt of $74 billion and only recently exited bankruptcy. Investors have been embroiled in lawsuits attempting to recover losses since 2017. Investors should have been made aware that there were significant risks associated with investing in financial products based in Puerto Rico.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. An investor’s profile includes information about their risk tolerance, financial goals, and age. Investors who rely on their brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses through FINRA arbitration.

  • Investments can be unsuitable because they are high risk and likely to lose money.
  • Securities may also be unsuitable because they are illiquid, meaning 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 executed 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 over-concentrated in a particular stock or sector.
