Misrepresentation refers to a broker’s provision of false information regarding an investment or investment strategy. A broker may engage in fraudulent misrepresentation, in which they intentionally provide misleading information in order to deceive the client into purchasing an investment, or they may engage in negligent misrepresentation, in which the misleading information is the product of carelessness. Common forms of misrepresentation include those regarding the risk of an investment, for instance, a broker might portray a highly risky product as safe and conservative. Investors who lose money on investments that were misrepresented may be able to bring a claim against their broker.
