Ajay Verma Involved in a Variable Annuity Dispute

Aug 22, 2023 Variable Annuities

Ajay Verma (CRD #: 2833932), a broker registered with Ameriprise Financial Services, is facing an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on August 14, 2023. 

On June 27, 2023, an investor alleged that Ajay Verma improperly recommended that she exchange her RVS Life RAVA 4 Advantage Variable Annuity for an RVS Life RAVA 5 Advantage Variable Annuity. The alleged activity took place in 2020. The investor is seeking $125,000. 

What is a Variable Annuity? 

Variable annuities are complex investments. They are insurance products that come with an investment component. The associated fees, surrender charges, and potential tax liability can negate any supposed benefits they offer. Furthermore, the risk associated with their investments makes them unsuitable for many investors. 

FINRA Rule 2330

FINRA Rule 2330 requires brokers to have a reasonable basis to believe that their recommendation for the purchase or exchange of a deferred variable annuity is suitable for the investor.
