Israels & Neuman, PLC files FINRA Arbitration Claim for GWG L Bond Losses Against Cabot Lodge Securities

DENVER, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The investment fraud and securities arbitration law firm of Israels & Neuman, PLC announces that it has filed a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration claim for investor losses in the GWG L Bonds. The claim was filed against Cabot Lodge Securities on behalf of a retiree who invested at the recommendation of a Denver-based financial advisor. The claim was filed in Denver, Colorado.

GWG L Bonds were investments in life insurance products. According to the FINRA complaint, GWG?s strategy was to purchase a portfolio of life insurance policies at discounts from the face values of the policies; then when an insured died, GWG would get the proceeds of the life insurance policy and the proceeds would be paid indirectly to the GWG bondholders. Since the policies were bought at discounts of the face values, there were expectations of making profits from the policies.??

However, the GWG investments carried significant risk. GWG failed to pay interest to investors in January 2022, and it ultimately filed for bankruptcy in April 2022. Unbeknownst to investors, GWG had been under investigation by the SEC since October 2020.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
