What Does This Mean?

Securities brokers have what is called a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of their customers. If a securities broker places their customer in investments contrary to their investment objectives, negligently handles their customer’s investments, or engages in fraudulent behavior with their customer’s assets, they have now breached this duty. If an investor believes that their securities broker has breached their fiduciary duty, they may be entitled to damages.
