Working with a financial advisor should come with certain guarantees. The advisor should look out for your best financial interests when trading on your account and recommending investments, for example. Financial advisors must obey state and federal laws and regulations while guiding clients. It is critical for advisors to follow these rules and make ethical decisions. Otherwise, the client could suffer significant and preventable financial losses.

Examples of Financial Advisor Negligence
Negligence refers to a breach of an individual’s duties of care to another person. In the financial advisor-client relationship, the advisor owes strict duties of care to the client. Failing to fulfill any of these duties, resulting in harm to the client, is negligence. If you are unsure whether an action qualifies as advisor negligence in Ohio, consult with an attorney from Meyer Wilson.
- Failing to supervise accounts
- Making unsuitable recommendations
- Breaking state or federal regulations

Negligence is not the same as fraud in terms of financial advising lawsuits. If an advisor commits fraud, he or she knowingly and intentionally deceives an investor. Negligence, on the other hand, is not intentional. It is simply the failure to exercise reasonable care according to the circumstances. A financial advisor could be financially responsible for a client’s losses if he or she is guilty of fraud or negligence.
