What Does This Mean?
Securities brokers have an obligation to their customers to always act in their best financial interests. A major part of this means that they are to obtain their customers’ authorization before executing trades on their behalf. This is because investors are entitled to the opportunity to decide for themselves if they want to be invested in a particular security. One of the main reasons that securities brokers execute trades without first seeking authorization, is because they know that particular trade is not actually suited for them. This can often result in losses to the investor.
