What Does This Mean?
Misrepresentation is a very serious charge, as it can often result in very serious financial harm to an investor. Essentially, misrepresentation occurs when a securities broker provides an investor with information that has been falsified or obscured in some manner. This can be either on purpose, in an attempt to defraud the investor, or by accident through the broker’s negligence. In this case, customers were also alleging that Boskus had omitted facts regarding investments. Regardless of the broker’s intent, misrepresentation can cause significant losses in an investor’s account as it can lead to them making crucial financial decisions based on misinformation.
