Broker Comment: After Mr. and Mrs. [REDACTED] moved to a new investment advisor in August of 2018, the clients wanted to liquidate 100% of their non-traded Alternative Investments. When they were reminded that they were unable to, they filed a formal complaint. With our complete file with many years of documentation, we were prepared to vigorously fight the complaint. Our previous Broker Dealer, based on advice from their Internal Accounting and Legal Teams decided that the cost to defend would far outweigh the settlement, and removed us from any communication with the [REDACTED]. After a few months, our previous firm settled with Mr. and Mrs [REDACTED] for $22,060.11.
