Stockbrokers can cause damage to their clients by:
Over-concentrating investor portfolios
Trading excessively (churning)
Making unsuitable investments
Performing unauthorized transactions
Selling unregistered securities
Improper margin liquidations
Boiler room sales practices
Falsifying account statements
Stockbrokers are required to make suitable recommendations to their clients, taking into account the age, health and financial sophistication, or lack thereof, of their clients. Stockbrokers and financial advisors 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.
