Can I Sue for Failure to Diversify Investments?

Investing can be a lucrative but risky business. But, the risks you take should never stem from irresponsible investments on the part of your trusted stockbroker. 

Fortunately, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) provides opportunities for investors to hold negligent stockbrokers accountable for their actions when certain types of fraud occur, including failure to diversify. 

Continue reading to learn more about what it means for investments to have a lack of diversification and what you can do to recover the losses you endured due to your broker’s negligence. 

What Does Failure to Diversify Mean?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket?” This describes a lack of diversification. Basically, if all of your funds are put into one investment, and that investment fails to generate returns, you will have lost out on your investment in its entirety. For this reason, failure to diversify is considered a violation of securities laws. 

FINRA Arbitration for Lack of Diversification

Because failure to diversify is a form of broker misconduct or negligence, you can file a FINRA arbitration complaint against them. This will give you the opportunity to obtain full financial recovery of the losses you endured due to a lack of diversification. 

You will need to prove to the arbitrator or arbitrators hearing your case that a lack of diversification occurred, but this should be fairly simple if your accounts show that your investments were not handled appropriately.
