- Suitability and Fiduciary Duty Recommending suitable investments is more than just a regulatory obligation. Many investors bring cases claiming lack of suitability, so RIAs must continuously put the onus on clients to notify the advisor of changes in their financial situation.
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will testify before the Senate Banking Committee on June 13 regarding the bank's reported $2 billion trading losses, the committee announced Thursday.
