At least one current or former customer of Centaurus Financial advisor Scott Eichler (CRD# 5431034) is listed as creditor for an $99,000 GWG L bond investment, according to records filed with a US bankruptcy court.

Investors should be aware that GWG “L bond” products issued by Texas-based asset management firm GWG Holdings, which raised more than $1 billion from investors before filing for bankruptcy while being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, may not have been suitable for customers with limited investment experience and/or low tolerances for risk. As the prospectus for these products explained, they came with a significant amount of risk, including the possibility that investors might lose their entire principal. More information about GWG L bonds, and whether you may be eligible to file a claim for damages, is available via this investor resource.
