Lawsuit filed against Centaurus Financial to recover alternative investment losses

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)

The White Law Group announces that it has filed a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration statement of claim against Centaurus Financial.  This claim seeks to recover losses between $100,000 and $499,999.

The claim, filed by The White Law Group, was submitted to FINRA Dispute Resolution on behalf of an Arizona investor alleging claims for violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision. The claim further alleges that Centaurus Financial unsuitably invested the client in the following alternative investments (among others):

Core Realty Series A Debenture (2007, 8%)

Hines REIT

Ridgewood Energy X Fund

Before recommending an investment, a broker-dealer has a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in the investment and to perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.  It is alleged that Centaurus Financial failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments prior to recommending them to these particular investors.
