Unregistered Brokers or Securities

Brokers and securities alike must be registered.

First, any person selling securities or professionally advising about securities must be registered with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) or provide proof of exemption from registration. If you’ve purchased securities from a person who did not take registration provisions, then you may have a right to rescind the transaction and/or hold the individual liable for damages.

Second, you may have legal rights against your broker and investment firm if you were sold unregistered securities. Stocks are sometimes legally issued to boards of directors or other investors even before they’ve been registered with the SEC. However, most stocks must be registered before they’re exchanged. The sale of unregistered securities is a felony.
