What Does This Mean?

Investors who hire securities brokers to manage their portfolios expect that it will be done properly. There would be no point to even hire a professional if said professional does not bring anything to the table. In order to do their jobs properly, securities brokers must be able to recommend investments to their customers that they (the customers) would actually be financially suited for. This suitability can be determined by analyzing financial information provided by the customer. This information includes; financial situation, age, net worth,  investment objectives, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs. Brokers who are unable to determine suitability by looking at these factors are unable to perform their duties to the required standard of someone in their position.
