Bart Cutino: Did Central Coast Advisor Recommend GWG L Bonds?
Records filed with a US bankruptcy court indicate that at least seven current or former clients of Central Coast Financial advisor Bart Cutino (CRD# 1140219) are listed as creditors for investments in GWG Holdings L bonds and/or preferred stock. The records disclose investments of $800,000. Records published by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and the Securities and Exchange Commission show that the former Centaurus Financial representative is currently based in Monterey, California.
According to a 2022 report by the Wall Street Journal, GWG L bonds were life insurance-backed corporate bonds issued by GWG Holdings, an alternative assets firm based in Dallas, Texas. The bonds reportedly raised more than $1 billion from investors, including many retail investors, whom they were intended to repay when the policy owners’ passed away. The company experienced various financial difficulties and eventually filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, disclosing in its filings that it was under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Financial advisors who recommended risky investments in GWG Holdings to conservative or inexperienced investors be liable for damages. More information about these products is available here.
