  • Resources for learning more about your current financial advisor or securities broker
  • “Red flags” that may help investors avoid certain products and certain brokers or advisors
  • “Best practices” that may help investors avoid misfeasance or malfeasance by brokers or advisors
  • Tips on whether an investor may or may not have a valid legal claim
