Unfortunately, broker misconduct is common and can result in substantial losses to investors. Brokers are required to make recommendations that are in the best interest of their clients. An investment recommendation may be unsuitable if the broker did not take into consideration a client’s investment objectives, risk tolerance, experience, financial situation, and other factors.
Another form of broker misconduct that may result in damages includes overconcentration. Overconcentration occurs when a broker fails to diversify assets causing an imbalance in the client’s portfolio. If you suspect any kind of wrongdoing or regulatory violations, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
