Woodbury Financial Broker, Robert Ginsberg, Has Pending Complaint For $1MM

The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Robert Ginsberg, a Financial Advisor at Woodbury Financial Services in Wallingford, Connecticut.  Robert Ginsberg has been in the securities industry since 2008 and previously worked at Investors Capital Corp.

According to publicly available records released by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), on November 27, 2017, a customer filed a complaint, alleging unsuitable investment recommendations in real estate investment trusts (REITs).  The complaint alleges damages of $1 million.  Specifically, the complaint alleges:

THE ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS WERE SUITABLE FOR THE CLIENTS BASED ON THEIR INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES. THE CLIENTS WERE SPECIFICALLY INTERESTED IN THE ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS BECAUSE OF LOSSES PREVIOUSLY SUSTAINED IN THE MARKET. THE CLIENTS LIKED THE IDEA OF POTENTIAL GROWTH WITHOUT THE RISK AND VOLATILITY OF THE MARKET. AFTER AGREEING TO A FINANCIAL STRATEGY AND WHILE RECEIVING FULL DISTRIBUTIONS FROM THE ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS, THE CLIENTS PURCHASED A HOME WITHOUT NOTIFYING ME. THE POSSIBILITY OF PURCHASING A HOUSE WAS NOT DISCUSSED OR DISCLOSED TO ME BY THE CLIENTS PRIOR TO CREATING THE FINANCIAL STRATEGY.

Non-traded REITs do not trade a public securities exchange.  For this reason, non-traded REITs can be illiquid, meaning investors may be unable to sell their investments on demand.  Typically, the commissions generated on non-traded REITs are higher than industry norm and may be subject to extreme volatility due to associated risk factors.  Non-traded REITs are only suitable for investors with a long term investment horizon who are willing to accept higher levels of risk in their investments
