FINRA Rule 2020
FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of manipulative, deceptive, or otherwise fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. Misrepresenting an investment’s features, limitations, or requirements violates this rule.
What are VULs?
A Variable Universal Life insurance policy (VUL) has two notable features: a tax-free death benefit for beneficiaries and an investment portfolio. A portion of each premium payment is invested—but the policy’s value depends on the performance of these investments, and is not guaranteed to increase. Further, VULs are often at risk for lapsing, which negates their tax benefits.
Andrzej Dudus has passed the following exams:
- Series 63 – Uniform Securities Agent State Law Examination
- SIE – Securities Industry Essentials Examination
- Series 6 – Investment Company Products/Variable Contracts Representative Examination
Andrzej Dudus is a registered broker in five states and a registered investment adviser in New York and Texas.
