How Do I Know My Broker Is Making Legitimate Investments?

A broker or brokerage that handles an investment account is bound by the contractual terms governing that account, federal and state securities laws, the rules promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Often, if an investment sounds too good to be true, it is. Best practice is to speak with a qualified securities litigation attorney to review your portfolio and determine if their recommendations comply with applicable laws and regulations.
