What is Investment Fraud? What is Breach of Fiduciary Duty?

Investment fraud refers to any deceptive acts or schemes engaged in by a stockbroker.

Breach of fiduciary duty refers to a person (fiduciary) who has a legal and ethical relationship based on trust with another party. In many cases, stockbrokers have a duty to his investors who rely on him/her for sound advice and keeping their best interest at heart.
