According to FINRA’s BrokerCheck, Kenneth James New is the subject of 1 Regulatory Disclosure, Initiated by the Florida Department of Financial Services for violation of Florida insurance regulations. For this violation, Mr. New was fined and given 1-year probation.


Peiffer Wolf is actively investigating Ken New for his alleged recommendation of alternative investments such as:

  • American Hospitality Properties REIT, Inc.
  • Priority Income Fund Inc. Class R2 
  • Red Oak Capital Fund V, LLC
  • Preferred Apartment Communities, Inc. 
  • Bluerock Residential Growth REIT Inc. 
  • Gladstone LD Corp (Preferred Stock)
  • Griffin Realty Trust, Inc.
  • Franklin BSP Realty Trust, Inc. 
  • GWG L Bonds

GWG L Bonds were created and issued by GWG Holdings:


“Highly speculative, the L bond sought to provide a high yield for the bondholder in exchange for the risk that insurance policy premiums or benefits may not be paid. [They] were highly illiquid—there was no way for bondholders to resell them, except back to GWG Holdings at a redemption fee.” (Investopedia)


Illiquid investments mean investors may be stuck in the investment and unable to access their money. Moreover, many illiquid investments cannot be freely sold in the marketplace. All too often, investors trying to exit or access their money are faced with two bad options: sell the shares directly back to the sponsor at a heavily discounted price or sell the shares for pennies on the dollar through the limited secondary markets.


Prior to Center Street Securities, Mr. New was registered with John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company, Signator Investors, Ameritas Investment Corp., USA Financial Securities Corporation, Brookstone Capital Management, and Pinnacle Financial Wealth Management.
