Investor Allegations 

On March 6, 2024, an investor alleged that Chris Benson misled an investor when he purchased a variable universal life policy. 


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.

Variable Universal Life Insurance Policies 

Variable Universal Life insurance policies (VULs) have two major features: a tax-free death benefit for beneficiaries and the investment of investors’ premiums. Because the value of a VUL policy depends on the performance of these investments, it’s not guaranteed to increase in value over time. Additionally, you’ll lose a VUL’s tax benefits if it lapses.
