Did Qasim Ellis Misrepresent a Variable Insurance Policy?

Qasim Ellis (CRD #:6083667), a broker registered with Equitable Advisors, is involved in an investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record accessed on March 20, 2022. 

According to the allegations filed on January 5, 2022, Qasim Ellis 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

Misrepresentations 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.
