Unsuitable Investments

Call Our California Investment Fraud Attorneys – (424) 622-0062

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.

Our CA investment fraud lawyers are here to help. Give us a call at (424) 622-0062 or contact us online to schedule your case evaluation.

We have over 60 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.
