Understanding Stockbroker Misconduct Claims
A stockbroker misconduct attorney explains more about investment misconduct
and how to tell if you have a claim after you’ve suffered losses.
Stockbrokers and financial advisors are held to certain laws and standards when it comes to their professional duty to you. Any violation of those duties could be considered stockbroker misconduct if it causes losses for you, and it’s more common than you might think.
Although some claims against brokers can be complicated and confusing, the idea is fairly simple: it’s about what your broker should have done right. Speak with an experienced stockbroker misconduct attorney as soon as possible if you suspect your broker did not:
- Take your goals, needs, and financial situation into account when recommending investments.
- Follow your directions to buy, sell, or hold.
- Understand the investments he or she recommends.
- Understand the past and predicted performance of the investment.
- Inform you of any associated risks.
- Allocate assets and diversify your portfolio appropriately.
And, call us soon if your broker did:
- Misrepresent or leave out information about the investment to trick you into investing.
- Put his or her own financial interests above yours.
