Michael Lee Involved in Annuity Allegations

Michael Lee (CRD #: 715932), a broker registered with Essex Securities, has racked up a new six-figure investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on June 22, 2022. Concerned investors should keep reading.

According to a dispute filed on April 12, 2022, an investor allegedly refused to accept a GMIB rider and to maintain a required annuity balance. Annuities can be complex investment vehicles that do not suit many investors’ needs. The investor is seeking to recover $150,000 in this pending dispute. FINRA Rule 2111 requires investments suit an investor’s financial goals as well as risk tolerance.
