According to his BrokerCheck report, Michael Vetere was discharged from Ameritas Investment Corporation and resigned from New England Securities.
In March 2016, Michael Vetere was terminated from his position at Ameritas Investment Corporation following allegations he “facilitated the purchase of a $675,000 variable annuity contract without properly disclosing the source of funds to purchase this contract was from the surrender of a $700,000 universal life insurance policy.” He also allegedly “held customer funds and made inaccurate statements to Compliance personnel during the investigation,” and “submitted another variable annuity contract to a vendor prior to receiving the firm’s required pre-approval.”
In August 2010, Michael Vetere voluntarily resigned from his position at New England Securities “while under investigation regarding the placement of company business through the sale of an unapproved product outside of the enterprise general agency.”
