If you have sought out the assistance of financial advisors or brokerage firms to handle your investments, you likely anticipate that those entities will manage your investment with integrity. While some investment losses are due to the unpredictable nature of the market, some losses, particularly if they are puzzling losses, can be the result of securities fraud.
Brokers have a fiduciary duty to individual investors to look out for their best interests and responsibly manage their investments. When brokers fail in that duty through broker misconduct, making unsuitable investments, failing to take your risk tolerance into account, or committing outright fraud, that constitutes a breach of fiduciary duty. When brokers breach this duty, you have a legal right to take action to recover any investments you may have lost.
If you have suffered confusing investment losses, you may be a victim of securities fraud. If you suspect that your financial advisor or brokerage firm may be negligent or, at worst, fraudulent, don’t hesitate to contact our law firm, Erez Law, today to discuss your case.
