Breach of Fiduciary Duty

Fiduciary duty requires people who are in a position of trust and confidence, such as a financial advisor, to maintain the highest ethics, putting the investor's best interests before his or her own. Advisors can breach this fiduciary duty through fraudulent actions, failure to disclose necessary information, unsuitable investment recommendations, and acting out of their own self-interest.

If you're an investor who has a dispute regarding the inappropriate actions of a brokerage firm or an individual broker, claims will benefit from mandatory securities arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
