Brokerage firms are regulated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (or FINRA). FINRA Rules govern brokerage firms and their interactions with their clients. Per FINRA Rules, broker-dealers have an obligation to be staffed with qualified financial professionals. Brokerage firms are also responsible for establishing sufficient compliance departments to monitor the conduct of the brokers they employ to insure that they are acting within FINRA Rules.
Additionally, if the fraud or negligence of a stockbroker results in a significant economic loss for an investor, the broker-dealer firm may be held liable for the actions of their broker in a FINRA arbitration claim.
Common types of FINRA claims include unauthorized trading, excessive trading (churning), negligence, misrepresentation, improper margin use, and unsuitability.
