Misrepresentation occurs when a securities broker provides an investor with information that has been falsified in some manner. This act may occur on accident as a result of the broker’s negligence, or on purpose, through the broker’s intent to defraud. Regardless of intent, misrepresentation can cause significant harm to investors as it can lead to them making crucial financial decisions based on misinformation. For instance, an investor may decide to invest in a particular security because their broker led them to believe its suitable for them. However, if the broker had provided them with inaccurate or incomplete information, then the customer may have actually just invested in something they were woefully unsuited for.
