Many Iranian-Americans invested in GWG Holdings L Bonds after hearing a pitch by financial adviser Tony Barouti on his Persian-language radio show. As we have previously reported, our investment fraud attorneys are investigating and pursuing claims of alleged securities fraud, investment fraud, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, and other unsuitability violations toward GWG L Bond holders after investors lost millions.

The firm’s founder and lead investment fraud attorney, Jake Zamansky, was recently quoted in confirming that investors trust the word of their financial advisors, especially when they make claims of “guarantee” and “protection.”

“It’s an affinity situation. They rely on the representations from the financial advisers,” Zamansky said to “Barouti ‘pitched it as low risk, safe and secure.'”

The firm is currently representing several clients in this matter – mostly retired business people who invested nearly half of their worth. As is stated in the article and our past reporting, our leading investment fraud law firm will be pursuing FINRA arbitration on our clients’ behalf.
