北极星百慕大常见问题解答

我的北极星金融服务(百慕大)投资发生了什么情况?

2020 年 9 月百慕大最高法院发布“清算”令,并且清算人被任命。这意味着所有资产都被冻结,投资者将无法获得他们的资产。


我的投资亏了吗?

很有可能,大部分投资都没了。一般来说,当一家公司处于这种情况时,结果通常相当糟糕。有些资产可能会被退还,但如果退还的话,很可能会少得可怜。这个过程可能需要几年时间。


我该怎么做才能拿回我在北极星(百慕大)投资的钱?

最好的做法是对推荐北极星的银行和/或经纪公司提起诉讼。在清算人对公司进行清算时,投资者无法直接起诉北极星。


如果我起诉银行和/或经纪公司,我的北极星投资会发生什么情况?

什么也不会发生。您仍然持有北极星的投资。如果成功,您将从银行和经纪公司获得钱款,而且您仍将拥有北极星投资。几年后,清算人将支付您的投资份额。您的选择是要么起诉银行/经纪人,并等待清算人,要么什么都不做,等待清算人。


我必须支付什么费用才能对银行和/或经纪公司提起诉讼吗?

不!这个案子将会以您的名义立案,而您不用付什么费用。如果案件不成功,没有钱被追回,您将不欠任何费用或开支。只有在成功追款的情况下才收取费用。无追款,无费用/开支。案件结束时,无论输赢,您仍将拥有您的北极星金融服务(百慕大)投资。


费用适用于清算人最终返还给我的东西吗?

不!胜诉酬金仅适用于从银行/经纪公司收回的款项。如果清算人归还任何东西,只要您还持有投资,您就会收到。该费用不适用于北极星的资产返还。


我拥有北极星保险/年金产品。那会被区别对待吗?

不会。所有可用信息表明,保险产品将与银行产品同等对待。


对银行/经纪公司的诉讼需要多长时间?会涉及什么?

大约需要一年时间。您的参与很有限。一切都是通过电子邮件、电话和 Zoom 完成的。不会有证词。如果需要,我们可以申请通过 Zoom 完成听证会。


如果我在美国以外的南美或亚洲怎么办?

这没关系。几乎所有北极星金融服务(百慕大)的客户都在拉丁美洲或亚洲,而且案件还在不断提交。由于 COVID,大多数听证会都是通过 Zoom 进行的。


这是我自己的个人案件,还是某种集体诉讼?

这不是集体诉讼,集体诉讼很少奏效,通常收效甚微。这将是您自己的个人案件,您的身份和个人财务信息会被严格保密。但是,如果您的家庭成员或朋友拥有北极星投资,我们鼓励你们合并为到一个案件。然而,那是你们的决定。


等到清算人完成,有什么好处吗?

没有。该诉讼不涉及北极星金融或清算人。这涉及银行/经纪公司做出不合适的投资离岸产品的建议。涉及银行/经纪公司的虚假陈述/疏漏和缺乏尽职调查。

海外投资者将资产带到美国,为家人的储蓄寻找避风港。当美国有可行的替代方案时,顾问能做的最不合适的事情就是推荐来自百慕大的不可靠的离岸投资。您可以起诉银行/经纪人,并等待清算人,或者什么都不做,等待清算人。最终,您会得到他们认为您应该得到的一切。要积极主动地去向银行/经纪公司追索。

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
★★★★★
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
★★★★★
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M.L.
★★★★★
"Good positive experience, guided us through a difficult process and was pleased with the outcome. Everyone I dealt with were exceptional." A.G.
★★★★★
"Good intelligent attorneys who never miss a beat. I set my expectations high and they delivered above and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to let SSE&K represent you. Top notch, efficient and effective firm." S.M.
