A few words about suitability and fiduciary duty:

Briefly, suitability is a lower standard in securities claims, FINRA arbitration or mediation.  Fiduciary duty, if any, is a much higher and specific standard of care.  We explain distinct factors and elements as causes of action, liability and damages may change with respect to your unique client’s fact set.
