February 2022. “Client is unhappy with purchases of non-traded REITS purchased in 2014 to 2015. The clients have filed for arbitration and allege in 2014 and 2015 the representative improperly recommended the clients invest in a high commission illiquid alternative investment which they allege was misrepresented to them by the representative and was unsuitable for their financial situation, risk tolerance and investment objectives. The clients further allege the firm failed to conduct adequate due diligence and failed to supervise the activities of the representative.” The customer is seeking $100,001 in damages and the case is currently pending.
