What Does This Mean?
There must be a mutual trust between securities brokers and investors in order for the relationship between them to work. Investors can’t be expected to leave their money with a separate party that they do not trust. The only reason that this trust exists is because of securities brokers’ fiduciary duty. Investors know that brokers are bound by this duty to always act in their best financial interests. When securities brokers intentionally breach this duty, they are betraying their customers trust and working toward the erosion of the investor/broker relationship.
