What is the SEC’s Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI)? 

SEC Regulation Best Interest, a/k/a “Reg BI” establishes a “best interest” standard of conduct for brokers and brokerage firms making recommendations of securities investments and investment strategies to their customers, under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. 

Under Reg BI, investment advisors and their firms have a responsibility to make recommendations with their customer’s best interest in mind, based upon the client’s personal needs and preferences. 

Investors may be entitled to a financial recovery if their brokerage firm failed to supervise the representative managing their brokerage account, and/or if their advisor did not act in their best interest.

How Can Investors Recover Their Losses?

Brokers and financial advisors must consider an investment’s risk and ensure that they do not misrepresent or omit material facts when making investment recommendations. Further, financial professionals and their firms cannot disregard a customer’s risk-tolerance when making unsuitable investment recommendations. 

Facts about each investor, such as their financial situation/needs, age, employment status, tax status, investment objectives and experience, risk tolerance, and what other investments they may be holding must be taken into consideration by brokers/financial advisors in order to meet the “reasonable diligence” requirement of FINRA’s suitability rule. These factors help determine the suitability of a particular investment or investment strategy for a particular investor.
