Investment Fraud Attorney Explains Easy Way to Gauge Your Risk Level

David P. Meyer

An experienced investment fraud attorney points to a free and helpful tool that will gauge your risk for investment fraud.

As an experienced investment fraud attorney, I find that many people are surprised at the behaviors that put you at risk for investment fraud. Oftentimes, it has very little to do with how much money you have or the types of investments you’re interested in; it has far more to do with seemingly unrelated factors, including whether you live alone or have signed up for the Do Not Call registry.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is aware of this and has created a tool to help investors gauge their risk when it comes to financial fraud. This simple test walks you through a series of questions, and then displays information about your susceptibility to fraud.

How to Use FINRA’s Risk Meter

  1. Go to FINRA’s Risk Meter page.
  2. Answer each of the twelve simple questions to the best of your ability.
  3. When you’re done, a meter will show your risk level on a scale of low to high, and give you tips to help you change the behaviors that put you at risk for investment fraud.
