What Does This Mean?

Investors and securities brokers enter into a contractual agreement before they begin their financial relationship. This contract is to protect both parties in case one party decides to default on their agreement. When a securities broker fails to live up to what they contractually agreed to, they have officially breached the contract. This can often lead to the investor experiencing financial loss.
