Unsuitable Investments

In every broker-investor relationship, the broker must assess what the investor’s goals are as well as his or her risk tolerance. This assessment is based on a number of key factors, including the investor’s stated objectives, risk tolerance, financial condition and tax status. It is the broker’s responsibility to only pursue investments suitable for that investor based on these factors.

When a broker recommends unsuitable investment strategies, it can leave the investor vulnerable to unnecessary risk.
