What Does This Mean?
One of the most noteworthy allegations levied against Anthony Joslin was that he made material misrepresentations. This occurs when a securities broker provides an investor with falsified information about an investment. This can be done either with fraudulent intent, or just occur because of the broker’s negligence. Regardless of intent, misrepresentation can be detrimental to investors as it can cause them to be placed in investments they would not have otherwise purchased had they known all the information accurately.
