When you partner with a financial advisor to make smarter decisions with your money, you expect your advisor to exercise reasonable care and judgment when handling your finances. Unfortunately, thousands of individuals lose their hard-earned money to advisors who make careless decisions and fail to comply with federal regulations.

Difference Between Negligence and Fraud
If you’ve lost money due to the actions of a financial advisor, it’s important to determine whether you’re a victim of negligence or fraud. When an advisor commits fraud, they knowingly deceive the investor.
Negligence is different from fraud in that it involves a failure to demonstrate a reasonable standard of care when handling a client’s finances. Telling the difference between negligence and fraud can be difficult without prior experience or knowledge.
Fortunately, our financial advisor negligence attorneys can help you differentiate between negligence and fraud. They’ll determine what your best course of legal action is and perform a number of services geared toward recuperating your financial losses.

Your Time to Take Action Against a Negligent Financial Advisor May Be Limited
If you’ve taken financial losses due to an advisor’s negligence, you’ll want to hire a lawyer ASAP. That’s because there’s a statute of limitations for securities arbitration. If you fail to initiate the arbitration process within the timeline outlined in the statute of limitations, you could be barred from seeking remedies.
According to Code of Arbitration Procedure Rule 12206, you have six years from the date of the incident that caused your financial loss to file a claim.
