National Senior Investor Initiative: A Coordinated Series of Examinations (PDF)
Office of Compliance Inspections, U.S. Securities Exchange Commission [SEC]; and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority [FINRA]Link to more items from this source
Apr. 19, 2015

42 pages. "The combination of high levels of wealth and downward yield pressure on conservative income-producing investments may create an environment conducive to the recommendation of more complex, and possibly unsuitable, securities to senior investors as a means of replacing that income stream. Staff is concerned that, after a lifetime of accumulated savings, senior investors may meet the financial and risk threshold requirements to invest in more complex financial securities and that broker-dealers may be recommending unsuitable transactions to these senior investors or may not be providing proper and understandable disclosures regarding the terms and related risks of those recommended securities, particularly non-traditional investments."
