Overconcentration occurs when a stockbroker invests a large portion of a customer’s portfolio into a single investment or sector of the market or asset class. A stockbroker who fails to sufficiently diversify a client’s investment portfolio substantially increases the risk of potential investment losses. Some academic studies suggest that a securities concentration exists for any portion of a investor’s portfolio that exceeds more than 10% of the entire accounts’ value.

If your broker recommended an over concentration in a single investment that caused you a substantial loss immediately contact the attorneys at Mathews Giberson LLP to learn more about your rights.
