In the financial world, investment advisors owe their clients a fiduciary duty. This means that when providing advice and investment recommendations, advisors must put the client’s interests first. Abiding by this duty requires investment advisors to look at several factors, including their client’s age, other investments, financial situation and needs, employment status, tax status, investment objectives, investment experience, investment time horizon, and risk tolerance. If an investment is unsuitable for the investor and an advisor recommends it anyway, it could lead to substantial losses for the investor.

At Baldwin Mader Law Group, our team of California investment fraud attorneys can hold negligent and unscrupulous financial advisors accountable for their actions. We have over 50 years of combined experience and have helped thousands of investment fraud victims recover millions of dollars. If you have suffered losses as a result of unsuitable investments, we may be able to help you get your money back.

Investment advisors who recommend unsuitable investments also may be liable under a theory of negligence, if their recommendation was a result of lack of due diligence. In other words, if an investment advisor doesn’t do their homework, they may be at fault as much as an advisor who purposely recommends a risky investment.

As a layer of protection, fiduciary duty requires investment advisors to provide up-front disclosures to their clients before any contracts are signed. These disclosures feature many important topics, such as an advisor’s qualifications, services provided, methods of analysis, record of any disciplinary actions and possible conflicts of interest. This information places an investor in a better position to make an informed decision.

Investing is plagued with conflicts of interest, obscure disclosure, and lack of transparency. If you or someone you know has been the victim of investment fraud, please contact our California investment fraud attorneys immediately. At Baldwin Mader Law Group, we can provide a thorough evaluation of your case, give you an open and honest assessment, and deliver a recommendation about how to proceed. Our firm is dedicated to helping you recover the losses you may have suffered as a result of unsuitable investments.
