Investors Accuse New York-Based Broker-Dealer of Reg BI Violations
Securities lawyers at Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (SSEK Law firm) are looking into claims of losses by investors who were sold GWG Holdings L Bonds by their Cabot Lodge Securities brokers. Cabot Lodge is one of the more than 140 regional brokerage firms that sold high-risk product failures and junk bonds to customers and naive investors. More than a dozen clients were accusing the NY-based brokerage firm of alleged Regulation Best Interest violations when it sold L Bonds to retirees.
GWG Holdings Inc., sold $1.6B of L Bonds, defaulted on $13.6M of payments and interest it owed investors in February 2022. In April 2022, the alternative asset firm filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection.
