John Alexander Subject of VUL Dispute
John Alexander (CRD #: 7048756), a broker registered with First Heartland Capital in Chesterfield, Missouri, is the subject of an investor dispute. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on November 7, 2023. Details are provided below.
On August 3, 2023, an investor alleged John Alexander misinformed her regarding a Variable Universal Life insurance policy (VUL).
Variable Universal Life Insurance
A Variable Universal Life insurance policy (VUL) has two notable features: a tax-free death benefit for beneficiaries and an investment portfolio. Part of each premium payment is invested—but returns depend on the performance of these investments, so the policy is not guaranteed to increase in value. Additionally, VULs are often at risk of lapsing, which negates their purported tax benefits.
FINRA Rule 2020 – Misrepresentation
FINRA Rule 2020 prohibits the misrepresentation of investments or omission of material facts. Material facts include information about an investment’s potential returns, as well as charges, expenses, and fees.
