Investing money with a broker or brokerage firm can be a smart choice for many investors, particularly those who are seeking support in managing their investments. A good broker or financial advisor will look out for your best interests, invest your money in suitable investments in accordance with your risk tolerance, and manage your money in a responsible manner.
Sadly, this doesn’t always happen. Sometimes, brokers and brokerage firms mismanage your investments or use your investments to commit fraudulent acts. Losing your investment due to market conditions is one thing, but losing your investment due to broker misconduct can be devastating, particularly if your risk tolerance is low.

What Defines Securities Fraud in New York?
Securities fraud, also known as investment fraud, can occur when a brokerage firm or financial advisor makes a false assertion about a certain company or its stock value, causing individual investors to invest money into the company. This frequently results in losses to the investor.
There are many varieties of securities fraud, but one thing they typically have in common is a breach of fiduciary duty. This means that the broker or brokerage firm, who are tasked with looking out for your best interests, breach that duty, causing you to lose your hard-earned money to unsuitable investments, scams, schemes, and other types of investment fraud.
While many investment losses occur due to unpredictable market trends and conditions, securities fraud is sometimes behind certain investment losses, particularly puzzling ones. If you suspect that you may be a victim of securities or investment fraud, then you should reach out to a qualified securities fraud attorney as soon as possible. At Erez Law, we have the necessary skills and experience to investigate any instances of alleged fraud and help you recover the financial losses you suffered as a result.
You can also report any suspected instances of fraud to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or FINRA.
