Rodrigo Figueroa Allegedly Misrepresented Material Facts Regarding a Variable Insurance Policy
Rodrigo Figueroa (CRD #:6807507), a broker and investment advisor registered with Equitable Advisors, is involved in his first investor dispute, according to his BrokerCheck record, accessed on November 22, 2021.
On November 1, 2021, an investor filed a claim against Rodrigo Figueroa, alleging he misrepresented material facts regarding a variable insurance policy sold in 2019. The case is still pending. Variable insurance policies invest part of the investor’s premiums. These can be risky products and are not suitable for everyone.
What is Misrepresentation/ Omission?
Misrepresentation is a common problem in the securities industry. It usually occurs when an investment broker makes false or misleading statements about a financial product in an effort to persuade their customer to invest.
Misrepresentations and omissions 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. This unethical conduct also violates FINRA Rule 2010, which states that brokers must uphold high standards of commercial honor.
Losses attributed to a stockbroker’s material misrepresentations of facts may result in a viable securities arbitration claim for damages.

- SIE – Securities Industry Essentials Examination

He is a registered broker in eight states. He is also a registered investment advisor in six states.
