GWG Holdings, Inc.’s mismanagement of a high-risk, illiquid investment places the funds of retirees in jeopardy. The company filed for bankruptcy on April 20th, which gives investors limited time to file a claim. Contact us today.
GWG Holdings, Inc., an alternative asset manager known for selling life-insurance bonds to individual investors, filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday, April 20, after accounting issues and the resignation of its auditor prevented it from continuing to sell its products.
The company enters chapter 11 with more than $1.3 billion of L Bonds outstanding, mostly owned by individual investors who purchased the offerings from regional broker-dealers selling the bonds on GWG’s behalf.
Holders of L Bond notes may have claims against GWG and its affiliated entities that could be impacted or otherwise adversely affected in the bankruptcy case.
Sommerman, McCaffity, Quesada & Geisler, LLP is working to protect the interests of those bondholders and is seeking to create a coalition of willing law firms, investors, and bondholders. This coalition would designate representatives who could serve on a court-appointed committee in the bankruptcy proceedings and assure that financial losses are investigated and claims pursued where necessary and feasible.
L bonds are risky, illiquid investments that were created by GWG with a high-yielding bond and that fund the purchase of life insurance policies on the secondary market with the purpose of paying the policyholder more than its value. L bonds’ illiquid nature make them impossible to resell.
