RF Lafferty’s Abraham Heller: Client Invested $350K in GWG
At least one current or former client of RF Lafferty & Company advisor Abraham Heller (CRD# 1636080) is listed as a creditor for investments in GWG Holdings L bonds and/or preferred stock. Filed with a US bankruptcy court, the records disclose investments of $350,000. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that Mr. Heller is a broker based in New York City.
GWG Holdings was a financial services firm that reportedly pooled investors’ funds to buy life insurance policies on the secondary market via its “L bond” product, ostensibly repaying investors when the policies paid out. In 2020, the company disclosed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it was undergoing financial challenges and facing SEC scrutiny. In 2022 it revealed that it was suspending sales, interest, maturity, dividend, and redemption payments to L Bond and Preferred Stockholders. A few months later, the company filed for bankruptcy. If your financial advisor misrepresented the risk of investments in GWG Holdings, or over-concentrated these products in your portfolio, they may be liable to you.
