What Does This Mean?

Securities brokers have a fiduciary duty to always act in the best interests of the clients. Part of acting in their best interests means disclosing every relevant detail associated with the investment. When securities brokers leave out key details or purposefully convey false information to the customer, it qualifies as misrepresentation. If an investor believes that they experienced financial damages due to a securities broker misrepresenting the details of an investment, they may be entitled to damages.
