It’s not uncommon for advisors in the financial industry to hold seminars touting their expertise. At these meetings, representations were made regarding sound financial plans for your savings, retirement or children/grandchildren’s college plans.
What you received turned out to be markedly different than what was presented to you. Along the way, you were lulled into believing all was well, when in fact, it was not. Now your plans are ruined.You Were Referred by a Colleague, Friend or Relative
You heeded the good-faith advice of someone trusted. Whether a colleague, friend or relative. Or worse, the financial advisor may be a colleague, friend or relative.
If you were referred by someone you know, it is not their fault. But if you were wronged, you should act. It’s not a slight against confidants if you take action against the broker they recommended. In some instances, the decision to pursue legal remedies may be further complicated by direct familiar relationships or friendships.
In such situations, most of the time the advisor in question did their best but was simply negligent. In most of these instances, the advisor was led astray by his own employer with faulty information and/or products.
