Misrepresentation denotes instances in which a broker provides of false information regarding an investment or investment strategy. A broker may engage in fraudulent misrepresentation, in which the misleading information is provided with the intent of deceiving the customer into making an investment, or they may engage in negligent misrepresentation, in which they provide the misleading information as a result of carelessness. Common misrepresentations include those regarding an investment’s risk: for example, a representative might describe a risky product as safe and conservative. Investors who suffer losses investing in products or strategies that were misrepresented may be able to bring a claim against their broker.
