On October 6, 2023, an investor alleged that Joshua Taffer sold a client a fixed annuity without disclosing the surrender charges. The investor further alleged that he electronically signed the client’s name without permission. 

The Mississippi Securities Division and the State’s Mississippi Insurance Department are investigating the same allegations. 


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.

FINRA Rule 2010

FINRA Rule 2010 holds brokers to high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade. Electronically signing signatures and failing to disclose surrender charges also violate this rule.
