EXERCISING DISCRETION

In the securities industry exercising discretion means that the customer has authorized the broker to buy and sell securities without first consulting with the customer on each transaction. To avoid regulatory issues and to comply with firm policy, this permission must be granted in writing. Most accounts are not discretionary accounts, meaning that the broker is required to consult with the customer before making a purchase or sale in the account.
