What Does This Mean?

Brokers have a duty to their customers to always act in their best financial interests. This duty, known as their fiduciary duty, compels them to take care of their customers by managing their accounts in a suitable manner. This means that brokers cannot purposefully or negligently place their own financial interests ahead of their customers. This could include purposefully placing customers in securities they are financially unsuited for simply because the particular products provide brokers with higher commissions. It can also include brokers failing to conduct the necessary due diligence required to determine if an investment is suitable for their customer. Brokers who engage in these fraudulent or negligent practices have violated their duty as a fiduciary.
