Ann Vanderslice: $250K Complaint Against Federal Benefits Rep

Ann Vanderslice (CRD# 5057784), a broker based in Lakewood, Colorado, has received an investor complaint alleging six-figure losses. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that she is a representative of Federal Benefits Made Simple, an E.A. Buck Company, which offers securities through Madison Avenue Securities. 

Ms. Vanderslice’s BrokerCheck report discloses one pending investor complaint. Filed in February 2022, the complaint alleges that as a representative of Cabot Lodge Securities, she recommended an unsuitable investment in a GWG L Bond and failed to perform adequate due diligence on new offerings. The pending complaint alleges damages of $250,000.

In a statement included in the complaint’s disclosure on her BrokerCheck report, Ms. Vanderslice denies the allegations. “[T]he recommendation was suitable for the client at the time the recommendation was made including based on her overall suitability profile and previous purchase and profitable liquidation of the same instrument about which she now complains,” she stated further.

In April 2009 Ms. Vanderslice was permitted to resign from Securities America, according to another disclosure on her BrokerCheck report. The disclosure states that her resignation related to alleged failures to follow firm policy “relating to signature use and the supervision of office staff.”

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Ann Vanderslice holds 16 years of securities industry experience. She is a representative of Federal Benefits Made Simple, an E.A. Buck Company, which offers securities through Madison Avenue Securities. She has been affiliated with Madison Avenue Securities in Lakewood and Colorado Springs, Colorado since 2021. Her past registrations include Cabot Lodge Securities (Denver, Colorado; 2013-2021), Allied Beacon Partners (Denver, Colorado; 2010-2013), Titan Securities (Denver, Colorado; 2011-2012), Community Bankers Securities (Lakewood, Colorado; 2009), Securities America (Lakewood, Colorado; 2008-2009), and Linsco/Private Ledger Corp. (Highlands Ranch, Colorado; 2006). her credentials include the passage of three securities industry qualifying exams: the Uniform Combined State Law Examination, or Series 66; the Securities Industry Essentials Examination, or SIE; and the General Securities Representative Examination, or Series 7. She presently holds 35 state licenses. (Information current as of May 13, 2022.)
