Allegations of Overconcentration
Investment brokers should ensure your money is invested in a balanced and profitable portfolio. The stock market constantly changes. If your money is tied up in one product or even one type of product, your risk of losing large sums of money increases substantially.
If a broker heavily emphasizes one type of investment or security that results in a significant loss to the investor, that broker and/or the brokerage firm could be held liable for overconcentration.
