What Are Unsuitable Recommendations?

Unsuitable investment recommendations are those investment recommendations that are inappropriate under industry standards to make to an investor because they are not in the best interest of the client. A broker or financial advisor is required to complete due diligence of both the investment and the client before making investment recommendations to a client. They must review their situation to determine whether the investment is appropriate for their portfolio.

Information such as the client’s income, investment knowledge, risk tolerance, age, and future financial needs all must be taken into consideration before a broker makes a recommendation, particularly with alternative investments. If a broker makes investment recommendations that are not in your best interest, the investor may be entitled to damages through FINRA arbitration.
