Silver Law Group is investigating claims against Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Inc. for the sale of unsuitable investments.
Silver Law Group has filed a securities arbitration claim against Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Inc. (“Stifel”) alleging the customers suffered significant losses due to unsuitable investments and misrepresentation of fees and commissions. The allegations include unsuitable investments, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, breach of contract and failure to supervise.
Stifel’s broker allegedly recommended unsuitable investments to conservative retired customers. The investment recommendations included concentrating the accounts in below investment-grade corporate bonds and Puerto Rico bonds. The broker would regularly make the recommendation to sell one bond to purchase another bond with a higher coupon without explaining to the customers that the higher coupon carried higher risk.
The result of the recommended investment strategies was the loss of principal to the customers while generating mark-ups and commissions for Stifel. Due to this activity, Stifel is alleged to have failed to supervise its broker by allowing the activity to continue in the face of multiple red flags.
Silver Law Group is representing former customers of Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Inc. in securities arbitration claims for losses alleging that the customers were recommended unsuitable investments, were misled about fees and commissions, and for breach of fiduciary duty.
