Mr. Horak’s BrokerCheck report discloses two investor complaints. The most recent, filed in November 2022, alleges that as a representative of Purshe Kaplan Sterling, he acted negligently, breached his fiduciary duty, and breached contract in connection with investments in GWG L bonds. The pending complaint alleges damages of $160,000.

A second investor complaint, filed in June 2021, alleged that as a representative of Purshe Kaplan Sterling, he recommended an unsuitable investment in Hospitality Investors Trust, a real estate investment trust (REIT). The complaint alleged damages of $50,000 and was withdrawn.

According to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Bill Horak holds 36 years of securities industry experience. Based in Tallahassee, Florida, he has been a broker with Purshe Kaplan Sterling since 2014 and an investment advisor with Wealth Management Corporation since 1990. His registration history includes Nationwide Investment Services Corporation (Columbus, Ohio; 1990-1996), FSC Securities Corporation (Atlanta, Georgia; 1990-1996), Boardwalk Capital Corporation (1988-1990), Integrated Resources Equity Corporation (1988), and Waddell & Reed (1986-1987).
