National Securities Corporation and Troy Goldberg
Between 11/6/2019 and 1/29/2020, six customer disputes were filed alleging Goldberg made “unsuitable recommendations” in regards to private placements. It is not indicated whether these cases are the same client or more than one. The total requested damages for these pending claims comes to $640,000. However it is noted that the customer was an accredited investor, and Goldberg isn’t a “named respondent” in the FINRA arbitration.
Private placements are investments that are similar to the IPO (initial public offering) but are not available to the public. These offerings can be made by the company issuing the securities, or by a broker who acts as a placement agent. While they are subject to federal and state regulations that govern the issuing of securities, financial information is not made public as it would be with an IPO. These shares, bonds, and other instruments are sold by the companies to raise capital, but with little information available for the investor. This also helps keep the company privately owned rather than “go public” and sell on the NYSE and other exchanges.
In a customer dispute filed on 12/11/2008, a client alleged that Goldberg engaged in “negligence, churning, unauthorized trading, unsuitability, and breach of contract.” The client requested damages of $300,000, and the company settled the case for $11,500.00 for compensatory damages.
Similar allegations were listed in two previous disputes filed in May and February of 2007, both of which were settled. Both claims requested damages of $120,000; the claims were settled for $60,000 and $70,000, respectively. Goldberg denies the allegations in both cases.
