Warren: Kickbacks For Annuity Brokers Create Conflicts Of Interest

Download Audio

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is going up against another branch of the financial services industry.

This time it's companies that offer annuities — and the brokers they use to sell them. Warren says the losers in all of this are Americans who are sold annuities by a broker who's getting a kickback — such as a tropical vacation.

Sen. Warren's office released a report on the topic this week. She joined WBUR's All Things Considered to explain the issue.

This segment aired on October 28, 2015.
