Retired Couple Seeks $5M Recovery Over Alleged Unsuitable Alternative Investments by Advisor Russ Conrad

KlaymanToskes has recently filed a FINRA arbitration claim (no. 23-03089) against broker/investment advisor [Russ Conrad (CRD# 2746778)](http://klaymantoskes.com/broker-investigation/gilbert-russell-conrad-investor-losses-investigation/) on behalf of a retired couple.

The claim seeks to recover up to $5,000,000 in connection with Conrad’s unsuitable recommendations of illiquid Alternative Investments.

The clients, who relied on their investments for retirement income, were seeking low-risk, safe, income-producing investments that would protect their principal. However, Conrad recommended a concentrated portfolio of unsuitable Alternative Investments, many of which have since filed for bankruptcy.

Widow Seeks $5M Over Alleged High-Risk Investments by Advisor Conrad

KlaymanToskes has recently filed another FINRA arbitration claim (no. 23-02737) on behalf of an 81-year-old widow.

The claim seeks to recover up to $5,000,000 due to Conrad’s alleged over-concentration of the customer’s funds in speculative and high-risk private placement Alternative Investments.
