How to Recover Investment Losses in Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) LTD  

The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities claims involving broker dealers and sales agents who may have improperly recommended Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) LTD to investors.  

Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) Ltd., an insurance company based in Bermuda, reportedly offered insurance products as well as other fixed and variable-rate annuity type investments, such as the following:  

Global Index Product 
Global Interest Accumulator 
Global Advantage Plus Series 
Global VIP Elite 
Global Advantage Select  

These products have reportedly been sold through U.S. registered investment advisors and broker-dealers to overseas investors. In recent claims it is alleged that these investments were marketed as low-risk, for conservative investors, and came with guarantees of monthly income and certain tax benefits.  

Further, the company allegedly claimed that these insurance products had a “segregated account” structure that would protect investors by maintaining investors’ funds separately from Northstar’s creditors.   

In 2020, the company’s owner was reportedly convicted of wire fraud and bribery and handed a 7-year prison sentence.   

Unfortunately for investors, by September 2020 the company was estimated to have incurred a deficit of $260 million, leaving only $8 million in assets on its Balance Sheet. The company suspended monthly income payments, liquidation and surrender requests and then filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy proceedings.   

There have been numerous lawsuits filed against various broker dealers after the company’s apparent collapse.  Allegations state that financial advisors misrepresented Northstar as a safe, low risk product similar to a bank CD, promising guaranteed monthly returns as well as protection of principal.  

The following are some of the financial institutions that purportedly sold Northstar products to investors:  

Cetera Financial  
J. P. Morgan Securities  
Ocean Financial Services, LLC 
Trust Investment Services, Inc. 
Suntrust Bank 
Bankoh Investment Services, Inc. 
Hancock Whitney Investment Services 
BancWest Financial Services
