Advisor Gary Barth (Barth), currently employed by Ameritas Investment Company, LLC (Ameritas) has been subject to at least four customer complaints during the course of his career. According to a BrokerCheck report one customer complaint concerns 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 November 2019 a customer complained that Barth violated the securities laws by alleging that Robare engaged in sales practice violations related to an misrepresentation in the sale of REITs. The claim alleges $600,000 and is currently pending.
According to BrokerCheck, Barth operates through several d/b/a entities including Barth Financial Wealth Management Group and Barth Financial. Barth also engages in other businesses including Kaufmann Building LLC, BAB Properties LLC, and Kearney Hub among other business related disclosures.
