Normal investment practice
Normal Investment Practice
The strategies, securities, and other investment routines that a person or company usually conducts. For example, buying investment-grade bonds might be a normal investment practice for a risk-averse investor. Because normal investment practices are observable and often predictable, underwriters and investment advisers may use them to recommend securities to investors. However, FINRA prohibits underwriters from using normal investment practices when placing hot issues.
