What Does This Mean?
Securities brokers have an obligation to their customers to always look out for their best financial interests. This means taking all of the appropriate steps necessary to determine what investments are suitable based on factors like investment objectives and risk tolerance. This is also referred to as conducting the necessary due diligence. Brokers who fail to do this do not have their customer’s best interests at heart.
