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 this type of illiquid investment makes it unsuitable for many investors. 


FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits the use of manipulative, deceptive, or otherwise fraudulent tactics to influence the purchase and sale of securities. Misrepresenting an investment’s risks, requirements, or other features violates this rule.
