Fraud in the Financial Sector

The financial sector is an important part of the nation’s economy. This means when fraud or misconduct occurs within the financial sector, the entire country can be affected financially. Fortunately, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) provides opportunities to investors like you who may have been defrauded in the financial sector to recover their losses. 

With the help of a respected lawyer, you may be able to get your money back and consequently help to stabilize the economy. Read on to learn more about what the financial sector is and what types of fraud you might see there. 

What Is the Financial Sector?

The financial sector is a part of the economy that provides financial services to retail and commercial customers. It consists of some of the most well-known global banking institutions, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, as well as investment companies, real estate firms, and insurance companies. 

Together, they advance business loans that allow for expansion, provide opportunities to build retirement savings, issue insurance policies, and employ millions. In providing these services, such as mortgages and loans, they generate revenue that helps stabilize the economy. The economy can only remain healthy and stable if the same is true for the financial sector.
