In this day and age where negative interest rates on bank accounts are considered, opportunities with a positive return on investment get more publicity.
Often, the higher the return, the higher the risk. This doesn’t mean that every high return investment is a scam though. If your advisor however is deliberately negligent or has not done his due diligence properly before he introduced you to an opportunity, a liability can arise.
But not only your financial advisor can be held accountable for losses. There is a versatile palette of legal ways to investigate if mistakes or even scandalous errors have been made in the total business line where investors lost their money.
