STG Group – Securities Investigation
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for unsuitably recommending high-risk private placements, like STG Group, to investors.
STG Group, Inc. formerly known as Global Defense & National Security Systems, Inc., provides cyber, software, and intelligence solutions to the U.S. government organizations and commercial businesses.
According to SEC filings, the company filed a Form D in 2015 in Reston, Virginia. The total offering amount was $113,146,436.00.
Regulation D private placement investments such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.
The problem with private placement investments such as STG Group is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds. These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.
Is a Reg D Private Placement Investment suitable for you?
Despite the risks of investing in private placements, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.
