Sales Literature

Definition:

Remember all that annoying stuff your broker sends you? When this type of written material by an investment firm is sent out to a controlled audience of 25 or more, for the purpose of increasing business, it is considered sales literature and includes; research reports, brochures of firm investment services, and form letters sent to more than 25 customers. We recommend reading while in bed to help you fall asleep.
