Investor Names Eric Brisebois in Dispute Involving VULs

Eric Brisebois (CRD #: 4160820), a broker registered with NYLIFE Securities, was recently involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on March 28, 2023. Investors may have also worked with him through Eagle Strategies. Read on to learn more about his alleged conduct as a broker.

Investor Dispute

On January 13, 2023, an investor named Eric Brisebois in a dispute alleging that the Variable Universal Life insurance policies (VULs) purchased in December 2001 did not meet the client’s financial needs. This dispute was denied by the firm.

Investors should be aware, however, that firms don’t need to permit an outside review before denying a dispute. Investors can still pursue FINRA arbitration and may be able to recover their lost funds following a denial.

FINRA Rule 2111

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to recommend securities that adequately fit an investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the information contained in an investor’s profile, such as their tax status, age, and other investments.

Investors who rely on brokers for investment recommendations can potentially recover their losses by seeking out FINRA arbitration.

What is Variable Universal Life Insurance?

Variable Universal Life insurance policies (VULs) differ from other forms of life insurance by investing a portion of investors’ premiums. Whether a VUL’s value increases or decreases over time depends on the performance of its investments, so your returns are not guaranteed. Additionally, VULs are often at risk for lapsing, which negates their tax benefits.
