Investors should be aware that FINRA rules prohibit brokers from providing misleading information regarding the products they recommend, an act commonly referred to as “misrepresentation.” FINRA Rule 2020 specifically stipulates that brokers may not “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.” Brokers who make misrepresentations regarding their investment recommendations may cause their clients to purchase unsuitable products, in violation of FINRA Rule 2111. Representatives who misrepresent and/or recommend unsuitable investments may be held liable for damages in the event of losses.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Talin Kalaydjian holds five years of securities industry experience. Based in Westlake Village, California, she has been a broker and an investment advisor with Western International Securities since 2019.
