Luke’s Seafood LLC, Securities Investigation
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker-dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Luke’s Seafood, LLC to investors.
The company reportedly filed a form D to raise capital from investors in 2016. The total offering amount sold was purportedly $8,000,000, according to the Reg D.
The trouble with alternative investments is that they involve a high degree of risk and are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
These Reg D private placements are then typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission, usually between 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment recommendation that is made is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim. Fortunately, FINRA provides an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes.
