FINRA Claim Alleges Unsuitable High Risk Non-Traded Investments

The White Law Group announces today the filing of a FINRA Arbitration claim submitted on behalf of a family in Texas, alleging violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision.  The claim alleges that Centaurus Financial unsuitably invested its clients in a variety of complex, non-traded alternative investments, including the following:

NorthStar REIT American Hospitality Fund III Moody National REIT TriLinc Global Impact Fund  Priority Income Fund, Inc. Healthcare Trust, Inc.

The FINRA claim seeks damages in an amount between $1,000,000 and $2,525,000.

It is further alleged that the broker that was involved with the accounts at issue is William Charles Burks II (CRD# 2944992).

Centuarus Financial – Due Diligence

Before recommending an investment, a broker-dealer has a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in the investment and to perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.

According to D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, “It is possible that many more investors have suffered devastating losses due to the broker-dealers’ failure to supervise and don’t realize they have recovery options.”  Brokerage firms must supervise their brokers to ensure they comply with FINRA rules. If a financial advisor violated FINRA rules and the employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
