Misrepresentation and Omission
Misrepresentation and omission are very serious allegations. Omission occurs when a securities broker leaves out pertinent details when disclosing information to an investor about their investments or potential investments. Misrepresentation occurs when a securities broker provides their customer with false information about their investments. These acts can be done either on purpose through the brokers attempt to defraud the investor, or by accident through the broker’s own negligence and inability to perform their job adequately. The truth is that brokers are still liable for these actions even if they were not done on purpose. Regardless of the broker’s intent, misrepresentation and omission can be detrimental to investors. This is because it can cause them to make their financial decisions based on either false or incomplete information.
