Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas Is Investigating Citizens Securities Over Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Annuity Sales To Investors
Our Skilled Annuity Investor Loss Lawyers Can Help You Explore Your Legal Options
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas Annuity Investor Loss Lawyers have been pursuing the brokerage firms that sold annuities and annuity-like products from companies owned by billionaire Greg Lindberg. This includes our investigation into Citizens Securities, which is a subsidiary of Citizens Bank. The registered broker-dealer and investment adviser (RIA) may have allegedly unsuitably marketed and sold Colorado Bankers Life Insurance annuities to investors, including retirees.
Colorado Bankers Life Insurance, which is a Lindberg-owned entity, went into liquidation in late 2022. This is not good news for many Colorado Banker’s Life Insurance annuity holders. For one, liquidation proceedings seldom provide investors with full financial recovery for their losses. (Even though state guarantees typically will back insurance annuities, the guarantee is limited and specific to each state.)
Not only that but also Lindberg, who was released from prison in 2022 after his wire fraud (and related charges) conviction was overturned and is awaiting retrial, was just indicted again by a grand jury. This time he is accused of defrauding policyholders of hundreds of millions of dollars in a purported $2B scam. The indictment comes just months after the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) accused Lindberg, another individual, and their Malta-based RIA Standard Advisory Services of bilking clients of more than $75M.
Meanwhile, many investors, including retirees and senior investors, who purchased annuities from Colorado Bankers Life Insurance and other Lindberg-owned insurance companies have spent the last few years struggling to recoup their money. Many thought that these annuities were safe, low-risk investments. Instead, they have found themselves the possible victims of an alleged complex investment strategy that has left the annuity payments they expected to receive largely frozen.
Why You Should Speak With Our Skilled Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Annuity Investor Loss Lawyers
It may be that Colorado Bankers Life Insurance annuity investors’ best option for financial recovery is to sue the brokerage firms that sold them these investments. Considering that Lindberg and his entities have been under scrutiny for some time—he has long been suspected of having funneled funds from his insurance companies to his special purpose vehicles—one can’t help but wonder whether broker-dealers conducted the proper due diligence into these investments before selling them to investors.
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas have been going after the brokerage firms that marketed annuities and annuity-like investments issued by Greg Lindberg’s companies:

Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda)
