When you turn your hard-earned savings, IRA, 401(k) or retirement assets over to a stockbroker, financial planner or investment advisor, whether at a bank, a well-known brokerage firm or at a boutique asset management company, you have the right to expect the investments recommended to you to be suitable to your financial status, age, investment experience and expertise and risk profile.
When your stockbroker or money manager fails in that regard by placing your savings into an unsuitable variable annuity, and you suffer losses in your account, there are steps you can take to protect your rights.
