Brokerage Firms are Responsible for Supervising Investment Advisors
Under FINRA Rule 3110, brokerage firms have an obligation to supervise their representatives. Unfortunately, too many brokerage firms fail to conduct adequate oversight. This is negligence on the part of the firm. If a customer sustains losses due to investment advisor negligence or investment advisor fraud, the brokerage firm may be legally liable for paying that investor full and fair financial compensation for their damages.
