Sagepoint Lawsuit Alleges Unsuitable Investment Recommendations
The White Law Group recently announced that it has filed a FINRA Lawsuit against Sagepoint Financial Inc. on behalf of a Hayden Lake, Idaho resident, requesting damages for alleged violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision.
The Statement of Claim alleges Sagepoint unsuitably invested its client in the following high risk oil and gas private placement investments:
Atlas Series 30
Atlas Series 32
Atlas Series 33
The claim seeks damages between $100,000.00 and $250,000.00.
According to D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, “It is unfortunate, but we believe that many more investors have suffered devastating losses due to the broker-dealer’s failure to supervise and don’t realize they have recovery options.”
“Brokerage firms are required to supervise their advisors to ensure that they are complying with FINRA rules. If it can be determined that Sagepoint violated FINRA rules, it can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.”
According to the statement of claim, Sagepoint Financial allegedly failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments prior to recommending them to this particular investor.
