At Silver Law Group, we know from experience that not every investment recommended and solicited by a stockbroker is suitable and appropriate for the customer. We have seen, particularly in the initial public offering (IPO) space, that investors are often falsely promised high returns and low risk, when in truth the investment is speculative and subject to the loss of principal. Your financial advisor and the securities firm who sells the investment have a legal duty to fully explain the nature of the investment, its inherent risks and the possibility of loss.
Brokers and financial advisors may push risky initial public offerings on unsuspecting investors based upon strong financial incentives, including large commission payouts. Investors in such offerings must realize that these investments are inherently risky and should be considered very carefully before making a decision to invest. Representations made by stockbrokers that such investments are “safe” and “guaranteed” are typically false and are a red flag of possible fraud.National Securities Corporation Inc.
