John Hancock Financial Network/Signator Investors, Inc.

Losses Caused by John Hancock / Signator

John Hancock Financial Network offers services for meeting financial goals including wealth management, retirement solution, estate conservation, compensation design approaches and corporate fringe benefits. As of 2008, John Hancock has 350 offices across the United States. Signator Investors, Inc. is a full-service broker-dealer affiliate of John Hancock.

John Hancock Broker Misconduct

John Hancock/Signator doesn't have a clean record when it comes to dealings with investors. For example, in 2010, FINRA barred a Florida John Hancock broker from the industry because he stole more than $1.9 million from investors by way of selling fake products. The representative, Michael J. DiMare, lied to investors and falsified statements to cover up his scam.

In March 2014, an arbitration panel ordered Signator to pay $1.6 million to a couple who lost a substantial amount of money because of a bad real estate investment. The broker put one million of his clients' money into a real estate firm, but the broker misled the couple about the expected return on their investment.

A securities brokerage firm licensed by FINRA, John Hancock Financial Network has a legal duty to supervise its brokers and its brokers' recommendations to clients to ensure compliance with and prevent violations of the rules of the security industry. When an individual broker is negligent or acts in an unlawful manner against the interests of the client and that client suffers damages because of such wrongdoing, the firm may be held liable for the investor's losses.
