Integrated Financial Group Investigation | Unsuitable Investments | GPB

 

Peiffer Wolf has begun an investigation into the brokers at  Integrated Financial Group. A number of Brokers at Integrated Financial Group have allegedly recommended GPB Capital Holdings and potentially other alternative investments to investors.

 

Investors were pitched attractive returns offered GPB and the broker-dealers who sold the GPB Funds. Brokers, however, were motivated by the 8% commission for selling GPB funds. It now appears as if brokers received more than $100 million in commissions.

 

Furthermore, the notes that were sold are considered private placement, or non-traditional, investments that are not registered with the SEC. These inherently risky investments are often only suitable for sophisticated investors. However, many brokerage firms and financial advisors still sell these products because they offer higher commissions.

Have you suffered losses investing with Integrated Financial Group & Royal Alliance Associates Investigation? The broker misconduct attorneys at Peiffer Wolf will fight to recover your losses.
