Brokerage firms are required to perform due diligence on any offering they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations made are suitable in light of the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, income, and investment objectives.
If a firm fails to perform due diligence or makes an unsuitable recommendation, the broker-dealer can be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
FINRA can help resolve problems and disputes through two non-judicial proceedings: arbitration and mediation. FINRA’s Dispute Resolution forum handles nearly all of the securities-related arbitrations and mediations in the United States.
