Al Lovelace Subject of a Variable Annuity Dispute

Al Lovelace (CRD #: 2393766), a broker registered with Equitable Advisors, is the subject of an investor dispute. This and three other investor disputes appear on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on October 27, 2023. Keep reading if you have questions about his alleged conduct. 

On August 23, 2023, an investor alleged that Al Lovelace provided poor advice when he recommended a variable annuity in 2019. 

The dispute was denied by the firm, but investors should know that firms can deny disputes without any external review. Following a denial, investors may still be able to recover their funds via FINRA arbitration.

On February 7, 2020, an investor alleged that Al Lovelace provided a guarantee when he recommended a variable annuity. This dispute was also denied. 

Two other disputes alleged misrepresentations of annuities. 

Variable Annuities

Variable annuities are complex investments. These policies can decline in value depending on the performance of the underlying securities. Surrender charges, tax penalties, and other fees can make these policies unsuitable.


FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of deceptive, manipulative, and otherwise fraudulent methods to influence the purchase and sale of securities. The misrepresentation or omission of material facts violates this rule.
