Stockbroker misconduct covers a range of actions and omissions that can result in substantial financial losses for investors. These behaviors violate the basic fiduciary duty that stockbrokers, financial advisors, broker-dealers, investment advisors, and banks have to their customers.
These duties require that investment professionals place their clients’ interests ahead of their own. When this duty is betrayed, investors have recourse through claims made against the stockbroker, financial advisor, broker-dealer, investment advisor, or bank. Investment losses caused by stockbroker misconduct may be recovered through mediation, arbitration, or litigation.
