B. Riley Wealth Management Lawsuit featured by top securities fraud attorneys, the White Law Group

The White Law Group Files a Claim against B. Riley Wealth Management 

The White Law Group announces the filing of a FINRA arbitration claim against B. Riley Wealth Management for investment losses involving high-risk alternative investments. 

The firm submitted a claim to FINRA Dispute Resolution on behalf of a New York family, alleging claims for violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision.    

The claim further alleges that B. Riley Wealth Management unsuitably invested its clients in the following high-risk, alternative investments: Healthcare Trust, ARC Trust V, Inc., First Capital Real Estate Trust, Inc., Hospitality Investors Trust, ARC Retail Center of America, Inc., ARC Global Trust, Inc., ARC New York City REIT, KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, Inc. and American Finance Trust, Inc. The claim seeks damages of $1,000,000 to $3,000,000.00.

FINRA Dispute Resolution

Broker dealers have a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in an investment before recommending it and must perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.  It is alleged that B. Riley Wealth Management failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments prior to recommending them to these particular investors. 

FINRA Dispute Resolution is an arbitration venue for investors with claims against their brokerage firm or financial professional.  It provides investors with an opportunity to attempt to recoup their investment losses and is an alternative to filing such claims in court. 

“We believe there are many more investors who have suffered losses due to unsuitable investment recommendations who may not realize they have recourse, or may be unaware of any wrongdoing,” said D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, investor protection and securities regulatory/compliance law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Seattle, Washington. 
“Brokerage firms are required to supervise their advisors to make sure that they are complying with FINRA rules. If it can be determined that the financial advisor’s employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.”
