According to FINRA rules and federal securities law, brokers like Damany Henry are beholden to a fiduciary duty that requires them to act only in the best interests of their clients. This means, for instance, that they can only recommend suitable investments that take into account the client’s investment goals, experience, and risk tolerance. Firms are not permitted to misrepresent or omit material facts related to an investment, as this might cause a customer to invest unsuitably.
