Securities fraud can be committed by:

  • Broker-dealers/ Brokerage Firms
  • Financial advisors/ Stockbrokers
  • Corporations
  • Private investors

Stockbrokers can cause damage to their clients by:

  • Misrepresenting investors
  • Misappropriating assets
  • Over-concentrating investor portfolios
  • Trading excessively (churning)
  • Making unsuitable investments
  • Performing unauthorized transactions
  • Botching transfers
  • Selling unregistered securities
  • Improper margin liquidations
  • Broker bribery
  • Fraudulent research
  • Boiler room sales practices
  • Falsifying account statements

Stockbrokers must conduct themselves in accordance with the New York Stock Exchange’s (NYSE) Know Your Customer rule, which states that a broker is obliged to gather essential information about each client before making investment recommendations. If a broker recommends a securities transaction that is inconsistent with the client’s financial goals, he or she has violated the NYSE rule and may be held liable for securities fraud.
