One of those disputes concerns his actions at Cetera Advisor Networks, while others relate to his activities while working for Park Avenue Securities, QA3 Financial Corp, and JP Turner Company.

Jeff Meyers’ Cetera Advisor Networks Client Alleges Unsuitable Non-Traded REIT

Evidently, Meyers is a securities broker with Cetera Advisor Networks and a financial advisor with Cetera Investment Advisers and Cetera Advisor Networks. It appears that a client disputed Meyers’ sales practices in June 2021. Mainly, they allege that Meyers sold them an unsuitable non-traded real estate investment trust (non-traded REIT). Because of this, they asked for compensation. However, Cetera Advisor Networks denied this dispute in October 2021.

In general, suitability concerns risk tolerance, investment objectives, financial status, and other essential information about investors. Critically, non-traded REITs carry unique risks, including illiquidity. Supposedly, the client in this dispute invested in Hospitality Investors Trust Inc., formerly known as American Realty Capital Hospitality Trust. Evidently, Hospitality Investors Trust filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this year due to the decline in business from the pandemic, and it aims to restructure approximately $1,300,000,000 in unsecured debt.
