Investment brokers are there to make money off you, not for you. Keep track of your own investments. That way you will be safe.

A Stock Broker got burned by one of the investments he formerly sold, how appropriate. Actually the system worked. How arrogant to think a 1 month delay in one of the largest bank failures was excessive. He should be charged a nuisance fee!

What sort of dips-hit are you? This man was PAYING a brokerage firm for advice and education; obviously they failed to perform. How is calling them out on that being "...someone else's fault"? Ultra-maroon....
