Go online to check broker's background
Before deciding on a broker, go online to check on a broker's background. The private regulatory agency, FINRA, provides the free BrokerCheck on finra.org " to help investors research any FINRA-registered broker or brokerage firm,'' said agency spokeswoman Michelle Ong. "It should be the first resource investors turn to when choosing whether to do business or continue to do business with a particular broker or brokerage firm."
