- Investors do not need to prove intent or fraud, only that the broker or investment advisor was negligent or that the investments were unsuitable.
- Investors can seek to recover their losses, and in some cases, may also be awarded interest, attorneys’ fees, and punitive damages.
It is essential for investors to understand the risks associated with their investments and to ensure that their brokers and investment advisors are acting in their best interest. If you believe you have been a victim of such misconduct, it may be in your best interest to consult with a securities arbitration attorney to explore your options for recovery through FINRA arbitration.
