Are You A Retiree Whose Citizens Securities Broker Sold You Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Annuity?
Our Trusted Senior Investor Fraud Lawyers May Be Able To Help You Recoup Your Losses
Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas team of Senior Investor Fraud Lawyers (investorlawyers.com) are helping many of the investors who suffered losses in Colorado Bankers Life Insurance and the other insurance companies owned by Greg Lindberg. This includes, most recently, filing another FINRA lawsuit against brokerage firm Citizens Securities, Inc. on behalf of a Florida retiree who is seeking up to $500K in damages.
The claimant contends that Citizens Securities broker Shilpa Patel allegedly unsuitably recommended CB Life Annuity while misrepresenting this investment as being in line with this conservative and inexperienced investor’s risk tolerance level. In fact, this annuity charged high sales commissions and was not as highly rated as other investments in its class. Not only that, but also the broker-dealer didn’t fully disclose the risks involved and placed way more of this claimant’s money in the annuity than the amount of coverage that the state provides. Citizens Securities also purportedly overconcentrated a significant amount of the investors’ assets in Colorado Bankers Life Insurance.
A Boca, Raton FINRA arbitration panel will hear this annuities fraud lawsuit.
