NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — MDF Law announces the filing of a FINRA arbitration complaint against Centaurus Financial concerning Marc Korsch’s recommendation of GWG L Bonds. The case was filed in Sarasota, Florida. The case number is FINRA Case No. 22-01118. Mr. Korsch was not named personally in the arbitration. FINRA Dispute Resolution has already granted MDF Law’s request to expedite the case.

On December 1, 2021, Marc Korsch was barred from the securities industry by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA. In addition to his bar, Mr. Korsch is currently the subject of numerous pending customer disputes. These disputes concern the sale of GWG L bonds as well as other high commission products, including non-traded REITs. More information about these disputes is disclosed on his public securities license. It can be accessed here: https://brokercheck.finra.org/individual/summary/5525226

Centaurus Financial has taken steps to formally distance itself from Marc Korsch. On December 7, 2021, the brokerage firm sent a letter to clients. The letter tells clients that Mr. Korsch and his firm, NAV Advisors, ended its affiliation with Centaurus on February 5, 2021. The letter does not address FINRA’s decision to bar Marc Korsch nor any of his customer issues. It is noticeably silent in that regard. The recent complaint filed against Centaurus Financial concerns Marc Korsch’s recommendation of GWG L Bonds.

GWG Holdings marketed investments called “L Bonds” to investors nationwide. The FINRA complaint against Centaurus alleges that the broker-dealer was negligent by approving GWG L Bonds for sale to its customers. GWG L Bonds were sold to conservative investors who were mostly elderly. It was marketed as a safe investment that was guaranteed. and was pitched as a conservative investment with a guaranteed monthly payment. Unfortunately, the marketing was far from the truth.

On April 20, 2022, GWG Holdings filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy. Before filing for bankruptcy, in October 2020, it was served with a subpoena from the Securities and Exchange Commission. It failed to disclose the subpoena to investors until November 2021. Many investors purchased L Bonds not knowing the company was under SEC investigation. Since making this disclosure, the company’s accountants resigned, and it stopped making payments to investors (interest and redemptions). It is expected that GWG L Bond holders may receive little or nothing at the bankruptcy.
