Which of the following types of accounts are subject to less strict suitability requirements?

A ) Institutional accounts
B ) Corporate accounts
C ) Accredited investor accounts
D ) Fiduciary accounts

See Answer

Answer: The Best Answer is A

Feedback: Prior to recommending any transaction to a retail customer, a dealer must exert “best efforts” to obtain information concerning the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives, and any other information pertinent to making suitable recommendations on the customer’s behalf. This is generally referred to as suitability information, meaning the information that is necessary to be able to recommend suitable transactions to a particular client.

Firms are not held to such strict suitability rules for institutional accounts, which are accounts belonging to institutional customers. If a dealer believes that an institutional customer is capable of independently evaluating risk and the customer regularly makes independent investment decisions, the dealer’s suitability requirements are fulfilled.
