What Does This Mean?
Investment fraud occurs when a less than scrupulous securities broker intentionally deceives an investor in some form or another. This deception often leads to financial harm to the investor and is committed by the broker to further their own interests.
However, investors can also experience serious financial detriment due to a securities broker’s negligence. This occurs when a broker does something that unintentionally harmed an investor. However, the broker is not let off the hook as securities brokers are expected to perform their jobs to a degree adequate enough to prevent negligent mistakes from taking place.
Regardless of a securities broker’s intent, investors can experience serious financial harm due to their misdeeds. This why it important that securities firms are held liable for the actions of their registered securities brokers–so that harmed investors can one day be made whole again.
