Why Misappropriation Is a Risk

One of the FINRA rules that securities professionals are expected to adhere to is the prohibition from improper use of a customer’s funds or securities. When customers place funds into their account or securities are purchased in their name, they are to have a reasonable expectation that a broker won’t, in effect, steal what doesn’t belong to them.
