I’m A CB Life Annuity Investor. Can I Sue My Citizens Securities Broker For My Losses?
Brokerage Firm Allegedly Sold Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Annuities To Retirees and Seniors
If you are one of the tens of thousands of investors whose funds have been frozen in a CB Life annuity from Colorado Bankers Life Insurance, you may be able to sue your broker-dealer for your losses. Dozens of brokerage firms are believed to have sold this financial product to investors, many of them older investors and retirees. The insurer remains in rehabilitation.
One of the brokerage firms under fire for marketing and selling CB Life annuities is Citizens Securities, which is a subsidiary of Citizens Bank. It has even attracted the attention of Massachusetts securities regulators, who are investigating the broker-dealer over its sale of this financial product.
Already, Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (investorlawyers.com) is representing a number of investors in their annuity loss lawsuits against Citizens Securities. This includes, most recently, a six-figure FINRA arbitration claim on behalf of a Pennsylvania investor who was introduced to his financial advisor by Citizens Bank where he had an account. This novice investor made it clear from the start that he was averse to risk. Yet, his Citizens Securities broker went on to allegedly unsuitably recommend that he invest in CB Life Annuity, which charges high commissions, while purportedly making misrepresentations and omissions about the risks.
Not only that but this investor was not apprised of Colorado Bankers Life Insurance going into rehabilitation in 2019 nor was he told that there was a chance to withdraw up to $15K without paying a penalty that year. Meanwhile, the claimant remains unable to access the money he placed in this annuity.
