Refusing To Follow Instructions From A Customer

Definition:

This is a common claim against registered investment professionals, brokers, and fund managers, and it's surprising how often it actually happens. If a client's instructions are legitimate, meaning within the guidelines of the client's investment profile and within the broker's ability to perform, then the broker has an obligation to follow the client's instructions.
