Keep Good Records in Case of a Broker Dispute

While you never enter a relationship with your broker thinking it will end in a dispute, it is always a good idea to be prepared. The more detailed the records you keep, the greater the chances of recovering your financial losses. According to the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), many state regulators have checklists you can use, to help you keep good records. These checklists provide guidelines as to what information needs to be collected from your broker, such as the date the conversation with the broker took place and the proposed investment. You can contact your state securities regulator to inquire about this checklist.

NASAA also has its own investor checklist, which includes the following:

  • Name of the security
  • Reasons the broker recommended the investment
  • The risks involved
  • Whether the investment met your financial objectives

By collecting this information and more, you can stay one step ahead if a broker dispute arises. Whether you someday file a claim regarding the unsuitability of an investment or improper asset allocation, the more details you can provide during arbitration, the better.
