The claim alleges that the customer incurred market damages.

Hare is also the subject of a customer initiated investment related written complaint in which the customer requested unspecified damages based upon allegations that the AXA Advisors customer was placed into an insurance product which failed to align with the customer’s interests and which led the customer to pay unreasonable premiums to avoid the policy lapsing. Another customer filed an investment related complaint involving Hare’s conduct in which the customer alleged that the stockbroker concealed information about penalties for liquidating a variable annuity that the customer had purchased.
