FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 defines suitable investments as securities that fit an investor’s profile. Investors’ profiles include information concerning their financial goals, other investments, and personal information like their age.

Some common violations of this rule include:

  • Recommendations of high-risk investments, which are more likely to lose money. Alternative investments are always high risk.
  • Recommendations of illiquid securities that, since they are meant to be held long-term, can incur high fees for investors who attempt to cash out early.
  • A broker executing an excessive number of trades violates the requirement for quantitative suitability.

FINRA Rule 2020: Misrepresentation and Omissions

FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokers from omitting material information about their investment. It also prohibits misrepresentations and any deceptive or manipulative devices.
