Brokerage Firms Have a Duty to Conduct Proper Due Diligence on Private Placement Investments like Spring Hills Holdings
Securities brokerage firms have a regulatory duty to ensure that any investments they recommend to customers are suitable for them. This is especially important for brokerage firms selling private placement investments in companies like Spring Hills Holdings, LLC. In addition to ensuring that securities are suitable for its customers on an individual level, FINRA Rule 2111 (NASD Rule 2310) also states that a securities brokerage firm must have reasonable grounds to believe that a recommendation to purchase, sell or exchange a security is suitable for at least some customers. This “reasonable-basis” suitability requirement means that in the context of private placement investments like Spring Hills Holdings, brokerage firms must conduct thorough due diligence prior to approving and selling these products to their customers.
Brokerage firms “may not rely blindly upon the fund manager for information concerning the investment” nor may it rely on the information provided by the issuer in lieu of conducting its own reasonable investigation. Brokerage firms can be held liable for investment losses that stem from a failure to conduct adequate due diligence.
