Broker Misconduct

Broker misconduct takes on many different forms.  Sometimes investors are sold complex or “alternative” investments that they don’t understand and are not properly advised of the risks.  Other times brokers recommend unsuitable, risky investments that are not appropriate for an individual investors’ investment objectives or appetite for risk.  In some cases brokers act without even consulting their client or mislead an investor about a particular investment’s features or risks.  Frequently, such improper conduct can cost clients all or part of hard-earned savings they have worked for years to accumulate.
