Advisor Gary Ginsberg (Ginsberg), currently employed by brokerage firm Ameriprise Financial Services, LLC (Ameriprise) has been subject to at least four customer complaints and one regulatory action during the course of his career. According to a BrokerCheck report several of the customer complaints concern alternative investments such as direct participation products (DPPs) like business development companies (BDCs), non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs), oil & gas programs, annuities, and private placements. The attorneys at Gana Weinstein LLP have represented hundreds of investors who suffered losses caused by these types of high risk, low reward products.
In September 2020 a customer complained that Ginsberg violated the securities laws by alleging that Ginsberg made an unreasonable due diligence review of an alternative investment. The claim involves alternative investments, alleges $100,000 damages, and is currently pending.
In August 2020 a customer complained that Ginsberg violated the securities laws by alleging that Ginsberg made an unsuitable recommendation to purchase a non-traded REIT. The claim involves alternative investments and alleges $5,000 damages and was denied by the firm.
