All investments carry risk. Market and economic changes are a part of investing and can affect your return. But losses from fraud are not acceptable. Con artists cost Americans millions of dollars every year. The Vermont Securities Division is committed to protecting Vermont investors from investment scams and abusive sales practices. As part of our continuing investor education program, you may find these resources helpful.
NOTE: Equity-Indexed Annuities (also known as Indexed Annuities or Fixed-Indexed Annuities) are deemed insurance products in Vermont and therefore are regulated by the Vermont Insurance Division. However, due to their rising presence in the marketplace, the information is important to Vermont investors. If you have questions regarding these products please view the Insurance division’s consumer services section at www.dfr.vermont.gov.
