FINRA Rule 2020 stipulates specifically that no broker shall “effect any transaction in, or induce the purchase or sale of, any security by means of any manipulative, deceptive or other fraudulent device or contrivance.” A material fact is any information that forms a significant consideration to investors weighing an investment product or strategy—for instance, whether the investment is risky or whether their principal would be protected. Brokers who make misrepresentations of material facts regarding their recommendations may be liable in the event of losses.
