What Does This Mean?
The most important aspects of a securities brokers job is having the ability to recommend securities to their customers that they (the investors) are actually suited for. There are multiple different factors that can determine if an investment is suitable for a particular investor. These factors include; the investor’s age, financial situation, annual income, risk tolerance, liquidity needs, and investment objectives. Brokers who are unable to determine suitability by looking at these factors lack the ability to fulfill their duties to the standard that is required.
