Gail Maidenbaum Facing Allegations of Unsuitable FS KKR Investment

Jul 30, 2021 Investor Disputes

Gail Maidenbaum (CRD #: 1882772), a broker registered with Purshe Kaplan Sterling Investments, is involved in an investor dispute regarding an FS KKR investment, according to her BrokerCheck record, accessed on July 28, 2021. Maidenbaum is also registered as an investment adviser with Concord Wealth Partners.

On June 9, 2021, an investor alleged that Gail Maidenbaum invested his portfolio in lower-rated bonds, which were not consistent with his risk tolerance. FINRA requires that brokers only recommend “suitable” investments to their investors – meaning investments that suit their risk tolerance and financial goals. The investor further alleged that Maidenbaum recommended shares of Franklin Square Capital Corp (FS KKR), a business development company that came with too much risk for the average investor. Also, the investor had fee-related complaints related to their Penn Mutual Variable Annuity, alleging an increased rider fee.
