Stockbroker Misconduct, Disclosure and Misrepresentation
Among the many duties of stockbroker is the duty to disclose all relevant information about an investment so that you can make appropriate decisions. If a broker chooses to leave out some information or bend the truth, then he or she may be held responsible for your investment losses.
Why is disclosure so important?
You may trust your broker and feel as though any recommendation he or she makes is trustworthy; however, there are fraudsters and unscrupulous people in the industry who take advantage of exactly that impulse. In a perfect world, every broker would carefully explain every investment opportunity to you, explore the risks inherent in that investment, hand over all the information available, and point out any commissions or fees – in other words, he or she would always put your interests first and give you all the information you need to make wise choices.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world.
