What Did Your Brokerage Firm or Investment Adviser Do Wrong With GWG
Published On: January 16, 2017

Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating Kelly Althar who allegedly engaged in excessive trading (churning) in two accounts held by an elderly customer. Althar also allegedly made unsuitable recommendations. He was also charged with one count of grand theft. This is against securities rules and regulations. Churning accounts is a particularly egregious action done by a broker to generate large commissions for himself. Althar’s former firm, Financial West Group, can be sued in the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) forum on a contingency fee basis for investment losses.
