Financial investment advisers shall not create any ambiguity or confusion about their responsibilities when assessing the suitability of advisory services in accordance with Point 4° of Article L. 541-8-1 of the Monetary and Financial Code. When conducting this assessment, financial investment advisers shall inform clients and potential clients, in a clear and simple manner that the reason for assessing suitability is to enable them to act in the client's best interest.
Where investment advisory services are provided in whole or in part through an automated or semi-automated system, the responsibility to undertake the suitability assessment shall lie with the financial investment adviser providing the service and shall not be reduced by the use of an electronic system in making the personal recommendation.
