Addressing unsuitable investment advice

by | May 12, 2020 | Firm News

When it comes to investment fraud, detecting wrongdoing is tough in many instances. In fact, it is often especially hard to identify unsuitable investment advice, which is often very costly for victims. When someone suffers major losses as a result of bad advice, their financial future is at stake and the entire ordeal is often very emotionally draining as well.

Due to natural market fluctuations, losses do not always indicate that one is a victim of fraud. However, there are warning signs to look out for and those who suffer as a result of unsuitable investment advice need to take action.

Warning signs

There are various indicators to keep an eye out for when it comes to investment fraud and unsuitable advice. For example, if you notice that your broker failed to disclose key information prior to making an investment, or your broker does not reply to your phone calls or messages, this is very concerning. If your investor does not understand your circumstances or overlooks facets of your financial affairs and they provide you with poor recommendations, this sometimes warrants action.

Holding a broker accountable

For victims of investment fraud, it is imperative to hold brokers accountable for wrongdoing. Fraud and significant errors are very costly and have a major impact on the lives of those whose rights are violated. Sometimes, taking action is very tough, especially for someone who lacks familiarity in this area.
