Truist Investment Services Financial Advisor Named in $1.5M of Pending Customer Disputes

Stephen Berrocal, a Truist Investment Services broker and investment advisor based out of Coral Gables, Florida, is named in three active customer disputes. At least one of them appears to involve the allegedly unsuitable recommendation of Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda). The claimant in that case is seeking $500K in damages. 

Truist Investment Services registered representatives sold Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) products to customers, many of whom have now lost money in the wake of the company going bankrupt and into liquidation. Its owner, Greg Lindberg, is in prison. He is suspected of having funneled funds from Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) to his other companies.

Colombian Claimants Allege Negligence, Misrepresentations, and Failure to Supervise

Two investors from Bogota, Colombia are pursuing a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration claim against Truist Investment Services for the losses they suffered in Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda). The claimants, who are from the same family, had looked to the brokerage firm, which is affiliated with SunTrust Bank, to keep their assets safe. 

As longtime SunTrust Bank clients with an account in Florida, the investors were not interested in taking on any undue risk and were mostly invested in bank products, including money markets. Yet, Truist Investment Services recommended that the claimants invest more than $125K in Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda).
