Elderly couple alleges unsuitability and concentration in risky speculative junk bonds
Two San Francisco retirees have filed a $500k Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) case against NI Advisors, its President Sui-hock Goy, and broker Shirley Ank Wong. Broker Ank Wong also operates locally as AK Advisors in Daly City, CA. The investors contend they were unsuitably recommended L bonds despite wanting safe, secure investments for their retirement money.
These elderly customers are accusing Wong of using their shared cultural affinity to market these illiquid high-yield bonds to them. She then allegedly proceeded to concentrate $200k of their money in GWG L bonds while earning high commissions in the process.
