Unsuitable and Inappropriate Mutual Fund Switching – Stuart, Hope Sound, Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Lantana, Delray Beach, Lake Worth and Boca Raton, Florida FINRA Arbitration, Mediation and Litigation Attorney:

Mutual Fund Switching:

Mutual fund switching is the moving of assets from one mutual fund to another, either within the same fund family or between different fund families.  There is no charge for switching within a no-load family of mutual funds.  A sales charge might have to be paid when switching from on load fund to another even within the same family of funds.

Switching usually is initiated by the mutual fund shareholder (customer).  However, there have been instances where account executives have solicited unnecessary and unsuitable switches as a means of generating commissions at the expense of the client.
