Investment Fraud And Unsuitability Allegations Continue Plaguing HJ Sims Reg D Investments

Our Reg D Private Placement Lawyers Are Zealously Investigating Investor Losses

Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas Reg D Private Placement Lawyers ( is continuing to speak with investors who were sold an HJ Sims Regulation D offering by their financial advisor. These are high-risk investments that the broker-dealer may have allegedly unsuitably, maybe even fraudulently, sold—$2B in these private placements to customers, including retail investors and retirees. One can’t help but wonder if the high commissions and fees that HJ Sims brokers stood to earn from the sales took greater precedence over investors’ best interests.

Private placements are alternative investments that are generally illiquid, lack many of the protections that come with SEC-registered investments, and typically cannot be resold unless the investor can fulfill an “exemption.” They definitely should not be marketed to inexperienced or conservative investors.

What Are Some of The Fraud Allegations Involving HJ Sims Regulation D Offerings?

According to SLCG Economic Consulting in a 2022 article, HJ Sim’s Reg D program may have been set up to allow its own executives to use clients’ funds to make big bets while, allegedly, they kept the gains and left retail clients with most of the losses. There also have been accusations that the broker-dealer was inflating these Regulation D private placement offerings, including the ones that may now be worthless.

Not only that, but also, contends SLCG, a number of HJ Sims executives ran or owned most of the Reg D issuers. If so, then these individuals allegedly stood to profit both from the offering phase and the sale of these investments.
