Joseph Michaletz Allegedly Breached Fiduciary Duty Relating To Sales Of Investments In DPPs, LPs
Apparently, a client of Concorde brought a dispute about Joseph Michaletz in July 2020. It seems that the broker possibly failed to act in the client’s best interest. Supposedly, he was negligent and breached a contract, harming the client. In addition, the client indicated that while at Concorde and firms Triad Advisors and DAI Securities, Michaletz engaged in unsupervised securities business. Supposedly, Michaletz arranged private placements from 2015 to 2018. For this reason, the client demanded $225,000 in this ongoing dispute.
Concorde Investment Services Client Indicates That Michaletz Acted In Breach Of Contract
Notably, a second investor came forward in July 2020 to challenge Joseph Michaletz’s sales practices while at Concorde Investment Services. Specifically, the client alleged a breach of contract and negligence from 2017 to 2018 concerning DPPs or LPs. In addition, the client contended that there was a breach of fiduciary duty on Michaletz’s part relating to these alternative investments. Evidently, this client received a $55,000 payment to settle this matter.
Joseph Michaletz Supposedly Negligent In Recommending Alternative Investments
A third Concorde Investment Services client took aim at Joseph Michaletz through a July 2020 FINRA Arbitration Claim. Namely, the client indicated in this dispute that Michaletz was breaching a fiduciary duty and breaching a contract over the 2017-2018 time frame. The investments involved in this dispute reportedly consist of speculative DPPs and LPs. For this reason, the client demanded $1,000,000.00 in damages. This matter is awaiting a resolution.
Concorde Investment Services Client Indicates That Michaletz Sold Bad GPB Investments
Apparently, in June 2020, a client of Concorde Investment Services brought a dispute about Joseph Michaletz. Apparently, the allegations match those of other clients: breach of fiduciary duty, negligence and breach of contract. Similarly, the allegations concern alternative investments. Notably, in this dispute, the client identifies that Michaletz sold or recommended GPB Automotive Portfolio to the client. Supposedly, Concorde Investment Services failed to supervise this client’s purchase. Because of this, the client asked for $73,000 in compensation. This matter is ongoing.
Evidently, at least three other clients indicate that Joseph Michaletz sold bad GPB investments. Particularly, clients indicated that investments including GPB Holdings and GPB Automotive Portfolio were not suitable for them.
