November 2021 Customer Dispute

Status: Pending

Allegations: Customer [REDACTED] is seeking alleged investment losses of approximately $375,000.00 from CapWealth Advisors (“CapWealth”). [REDACTED] became a client of CapWealth on June 18, 2021, and placed $5,000,000.00 in her account. [REDACTED] was shown a 5-month investment plan prior to signing the Investment Management Agreement outlining her future investment in GSEs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac), a long-term investment. [REDACTED] demonstrated investing knowledge and seemingly understood the long-term investment surrounding a GSE. Mr. Pagliara also provided a detailed background of GSEs, ensuring [REDACTED] understood. After [REDACTED] signed the Investment Management Agreement, CapWealth invested $500,000 in certain GSE preferred shares on June 21, 2021. About two days after the investment, the trading price of the GSEs dropped, resulting in a reduction of the trading price of the preferred shares of approximately $375,000.00. [REDACTED] alleges Mr. Pagliara ignored his fiduciary duties and [REDACTED]’s investing objectives and attempted to time the market on June 21, 2021, based on a pending Supreme Court ruling, causing [REDACTED] a $375,000.00 loss. [REDACTED] further alleges that Mr. Pagliara failed to disclose material facts related to GSE preferred stock investment, acted in negligence and gross negligence, breached his fiduciary duty, breached the contract between CapWealth and [REDACTED], and violated the Tennessee State Securities Act §48-1-101, et. seq.
