Financial advising is not always about what the advisor says, but what he or she does not say. Omitting certain facts or information about an investment could be a ruse to make the advisor money at your expense. Misrepresentation is a common type of investment fraud scheme that puts you at the mercy of your advisor. If you lost money because you could not make an informed decision due to misrepresentation by a financial advisor in Pennsylvania, you may be eligible for compensation.

What Is Misrepresentation by a Financial Advisor in Pennsylvania?
Misrepresentation is the omittance of important facts about an investment. Misrepresentation within a financial advisor-client relationship could be either negligence or investment fraud. An advisor could negligently commit misrepresentation by carelessly omitting facts about an investment or breaching another duty of care owed to the client. Misrepresentation could be fraud if the advisor intentionally omitted facts to turn a profit. Either way, the victim may have the right to bring a civil lawsuit against the advisor for misrepresentation of material facts in Pennsylvania.
Our lawyers are nationwide leaders in investment fraud cases.
Do You Have Grounds for a Claim?
Misrepresentation of material facts is one of the most common complaints against financial advisors and brokers in America, according to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). FINRA has a special dispute resolution process for such cases, typically involving arbitration. You may have grounds to engage in the FINRA resolution process and/or file a civil claim against the at-fault party in Pennsylvania if your lawyer can prove certain elements.
- The financial advisor owed you a duty of care (fiduciary or otherwise).
- The advisor breached this duty by negligently or intentionally misrepresenting facts.
- The advisor’s breach of duty of care caused the damages you are claiming.
- You suffered real, compensable harm because of the advisor’s breach of duty.
These four elements make up the basis of most investment fraud claims.
