LaBovick Law Group, PA filed a FINRA arbitration against Ameriprise Financial Services, (NYSE: AMP), formerly known as American Express Financial Advisors (AEFA) for stockbroker misconduct and negligence. The claim alleges that Deborah Amilowski, Financial Advisor for Ameriprise Financial Services, failed to properly advise a Senior investor on risks associated with unsuitable products for a person of that age, at the time of the initial investment and negligence in properly identifying the beneficiary resulting in additional loss to the trust.
The FINRA Statement of Claim, filed on August 13, 2009, stated that Ms. Amilowski, recommended a RiverSource variable annuity as an initial investment to a 77 year old investor at the time of purchase, thus ineligible for a guaranteed death benefit. This investment was too risky for someone of this age.
