Investment Bank Fraud or Negligence
Banks and investment brokers owe a fiduciary duty to put the interests of their customers and clients ahead of their own. Financial institutions all too often are self- serving and seem only interested in their own profit and greed. The news in recent years has exposed the many schemes and frauds perpetrated by investment brokers and multi- national banks. Instead of doing their best to help honest people make sound investments, many unscrupulous institutions only care about what they will get. Most people work hard to invest for the future of their families. It is devastating to learn that your investments are lost or substantially damaged as a result of negligence, misrepresentations and/or fraud of a banking institution.
It is the responsibility of an investment broker and investment bank to make full and complete disclosure to investors of all material facts and risks related to investments recommended. If the fail to do so, they can be held responsible for compensatory damages and losses sustained.
A Financial institution may be held liable for other acts such as fraud, fraudulent concealment, fraudulent misrepresentations and violations of other laws such as the Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Act, 73 Pa. Cons. Stat. §201-3, violations of Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 28 USC §1964(c), and other potential statutory and common law causes of action.
