Mr. Durant of Pruco Securities—Prudential’s brokerage firm—was fined and suspended for improper sales of equity-indexed annuities. Equity-indexed annuities are complex financial products which generally pay high commissions to the stockbrokers who sell them, creating a strong incentive to sell these products even if they may be unsuitable for investors. According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Mr. DuRant improperly sold at least 27 equity-indexed annuities. If you suffered investment losses in equity-indexed annuities, you may be able to recover your losses through arbitration.
