CHURNING (EXCESSIVE TRADING)
CHURNING SHOWS A FINANCIAL ADVISOR’S GREED
Churning occurs when a stockbroker or financial advisor makes trades in an account more frequently than necessary, with the intent of generating commissions. Churning is an illegal practice to earn commissions for the financial advisor without considering what is in the customer’s best interests. One of the many problems with this practice is that it raises the investor’s break-even point. By paying a high amount of commissions, the stocks need to perform at a much higher level in order for the investor to break even or make money on the transactions.
If you have lost money because of churning by your broker, it is important that you have a lawyer on your side who will fight to recover your losses and work to see that the broker is held accountable.
