Debentures are a type of debt vehicle that carries significant risk. Often debentures are sold as unregistered securities pursuant to SEC exemptions laws. In general, unregistered securities are high-risk products that lack liquidity and are not suitable for the majority of investors.

The departures in question, GWG Holdings Inc, purchased life insurance policies sold in the secondary marketplace. GWG Holdings’ objective is to purchase life insurance policies that will potentially pay more when the policy matures than the cost spent to purchase the policy.

According to InvestmentNews, former Phoenix based broker, David Joseph Escarcega was recently expelled from the securities industry for selling such high-risk debentures to retired and elderly clients.

Broker’s that choose to sell high-risk debentures are required to perform adequate due diligence to determine if such investment is suitable for each individual client. Investment recommendations should be in line with the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, risk tolerance, investment objectives, and income.

When a broker overlooks suitability requirements or misleads a client, not only are they potentially liable for investment loss, the brokerage firm that employs such brokers may also be on the hook for losses.
