Suing for Unsuitable Investments

You should always be able to trust that your stockbroker is leading you in the right direction when it comes to your investments. Unfortunately, unscrupulous brokers are far more common than you might think. 

One of the ways stockbrokers have been known to prioritize their own financial interests over their clients is through unsuitable investments. Below, we go into detail about what constitutes an unsuitable investment.

What Are Unsuitable Investments?

An investment may be considered unsuitable when an investor makes an investment recommendation that does not align with the goals of the investor as outlined in their investment portfolio. 

In many cases, stockbrokers will make unsuitable investment suggestions in order to further their own financial interests. This can often result in considerable losses to the investor who was unaware that the recommended investment was not suitable for them. 

Examples of Unsuitable Investments

Understanding what constitutes an unsuitable investment for you is critical to understanding whether your stock losses were brought on due to unsuitability. 

For example, let’s say your stockbroker recommended that you invest in an annuity. If you are already sixty-five years old at the time of the suggestion, you can safely assume the investment is not suitable for you, as annuities typically take decades to mature before they are able to produce returns without penalty. 

Another example could be if you have decided to err on the side of caution with your investment and explicitly tell your broker that you want to stay with low-risk investment opportunities. If your broker then suggested that you invest in junk bonds, this would be a red flag for unsuitability, as junk bonds are extremely risky in terms of investments.
