Recommendations to Customers (Suitability)

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) 2310 is a suitability rule that is no longer applicable and has been replaced by FINRA Rule 2111.

The rule states that when a financial representation recommends a purchase, sale or exchange of any security to an investor, a financial representative has acceptable grounds for believing the recommendation is suitable for such investors, based on the facts, if provided, disclosed by such investor.

The content channels expected to be in compliance include: email, instant messaging, social media, text/SMS, audio, video, website and blogs. The regulated regions are North America and the United States.

Consult the FINRA website for the full understanding of this rule.
