Richard Hagan Allegedly Misrepresented a Whole Life Policy

Richard Hagan (CRD #: 2392157), a broker registered with MML Investors Services, is the subject of an investor dispute. This is according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on June 7, 2024. Keep reading if you have questions regarding his alleged conduct. 

Investor Allegations 

On May 7, 2024, an investor alleged that Richard Hagan misrepresented a whole life policy, which was allegedly unsuitable for her investment time horizon. He also allegedly made an unauthorized EIA fixed annuity purchase by falsifying and signing the application. 

The investor is seeking $400,000. 


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.

What is an Unsuitable Investment?

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment strategy fits their investor’s financial goals. Brokers must examine the investor’s profile, which contains the following investor characteristics:

  • Age
  • Risk tolerance
  • Time horizon (i.e., how long the investor plans to hold the investment)
  • Investing experience
  • Tax status
  • Financial goals

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover losses from unsuitable investment recommendations by pursuing FINRA arbitration.


He has three tax liens and five civil liens on his record.
