Identifying Losses from Poor Stock Investments
Investing in the stock market is one of the most well-known ways of investing for the future. There are a wide variety of different stock products that are available to public investors, each with their own risks and rewards. Many investors strive to gain a workable understanding of their stock investments, but the complexity of the system can make this process quite difficult. Most prefer to trust in the knowledge and experience of stockbrokers, brokerage firms and investment advisors when making their investments. While there are many industry professionals who maintain customer satisfaction as their utmost priority, some unethical professionals may engage in
fraud in order to secure the transaction with little regard for the losses their client will ultimately incur.
There are a host of reasons why brokers or other industry professionals may encourage individuals to invest in stocks that raise questions of suitability. Unethical brokers use
misrepresentation and omission of important information or fees when explaining the benefits and potential drawbacks of an investment. Others may engage in account
overconcentration in terms of not diversifying between stocks, or
selling away stocks without proper consideration. At The Law Offices of Jonathan W. Evans & Associates, we work to protect investors from fully losing their investment by disputing the loss through legal channels including
securities mediation and
securities litigation where appropriate. With over 35 years of experience in the securities field, we have a strong record of success in achieving favorable settlements for our clients.
