The claim filed by The White Law Group was submitted on behalf of a Nevada investor and alleges claims for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision. The claim specifically alleges that the investor was unsuitably invested in a Wells TIC investment and that 1st Global Capital only selected the investment because of the commission generated as a result of the recommendation. The claim further alleges that 1st Global Capital failed to perform the proper due diligence on the Wells TIC investment prior to offering it for sale to its client.
Broker-dealers have a fiduciary duty to research investments prior to recommending them for sale to its clients and to ensure that the investments in recommends are appropriate for the client in light of the clients age, investment experience, net worth, and investment objectives.
