Investopedia explains 'Broker-Reseller'


While all major brokerages belong to reputable governing organizations, such as the National Association of Securities Dealers and similar bodies, not all broker-resellers have taken all the examinations and various other steps to be considered qualified as standard brokers. Therefore, an investor should be sure to perform the necessary due diligence on a reseller before any money changes hands.
