They further allege that most—if not all—of Tatro's clients were given the same recommendations, despite investors being told that each account is tailored to the individual investor's needs.

Rochester, NY When clients turn to a financial advisor like William Tatro, or a financial firm such as Eagle Steward or First Allied Securities, they expect their money will be put in investments suitable to their risk tolerance and financial needs. An unsuitable investment is one that goes against the client's risk tolerance and financial needs. For example, a retired person can tolerate a lower degree of risk and may require more access to his money than a younger investor, meaning the retired person's account should have a low degree of risk and easy accessibility.
