Did Morrayna Gaskins Misrepresent a Variable Insurance Policy?
Morrayna Gaskins (CRD #:6799611), a broker registered with Equitable Advisors, is involved in an investor dispute, according to her BrokerCheck record accessed on March 20, 2022.
According to the allegations filed on January 5, 2022, Morrayna Gaskins misrepresented a variable insurance policy sold in 2019. The firm denied the dispute, but investors should know that firms can deny disputes without any external review. Investors should also know that they can still pursue FINRA arbitration and recover their losses following a denial.
FINRA Rule 2020 and 2010
Misrepresentation is a common problem in the securities industry. It usually occurs when an investment broker makes false or misleading statements about a financial product in an effort to persuade their customer to invest.
The following can be considered as misrepresentation or omission:
- Inadequate due diligence concerning security offerings
- Failure to disclose all material risks
- Failure to disclose all transaction costs
- Unrealistic investment performance projections
Misrepresentations and omissions concerning material facts in investment recommendations deprive investors of the information they need to assess risks associated with a particular investment. FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits brokerage firms and stockbrokers from making material misrepresentations or inducing people into buying investments with false statements about their potential benefits.
Losses that can be attributed to a stockbroker’s material misrepresentations of facts may result in a viable securities arbitration claim for damages.
Morrayna Gaskins 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
She is a registered broker in six states.
Besides Equitable Advisors, Morrayna Gaskins has not worked with any other firm.
