Recouping Investment Losses

Investors realize losses on investments for a variety of reasons. The risk of loss from an investment is realized because of poor investment decisions, changes in the economic market circumstances, or fraudulent and negligent advice. Investors can lose money as direct result of unethical and wrongful conduct of their financial advisors who abuse the trust and confidence of their clients. Negative financial markets expose the investment fraud and wrongful conduct of financial advisors. Whether the financial advisor is recommending unsuitable investments, making false statements, omitting material information or simply acting negligently, the end result is sustained investment losses. There are several types of inappropriate conduct that may constitute a viable investment loss claim: Ask yourself these questions:

  • Did your advisor tell you about the different types of risks associated with the investment? Was information withheld or not disclosed?
  • Was the recommended investment aligned with your investment experience, investment objectives, and risk tolerance?
  • Did your advisor discuss and implement a risk management plan to reduce the risks arising from your investment portfolio?

If your answers to these questions raises concerns, you may have a valid claim against your financial advisor or brokerage firm. Investment fraud can and does affect all types of investors.  Just because an account or an individual investment has decreased in value does not necessarily mean that a financial adviser has acted inappropriately.
