The case

Several customer complaints have been filed with the arbitration forum of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) seeking action against Tony Barouti, a registered broker with Emerson Equity’s branch in Los Angeles, California, who is also the CEO of Barouti Financial Services.

The cases, and claims, mostly pertain to the L Bonds sales of GWG Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GWGH) made by Barouti. GWG has recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, after regulatory reporting violations and ongoing investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The reasons for most of the claims, as revealed on Barouti’s BrokerCheck account, are the speculative nature associated with corporate debt investments and the failure of the broker-dealer to fully disclose risks and material facts related to the same to investors.

For GWG Holdings, Emerson Equity is the managing broker-dealer.
