Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas; Are You A Japanese Investor Whose US-Based Broker Sold You Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) Products?
HOUSTON, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Retired Couple Files FINRA Lawsuit Against Bankoh Investment Services and 
Broker Yoko Farias 

If you are a Japanese citizen who was sold Northstar (Bermuda) investments ( 
) by your US-based financial advisor, you may be wondering what you should do 
to recover your investment losses. Unfortunately, many foreign nationals, 
including investors from Asia, Latin America, and South America, were 
unsuitably sold fixed and variable annuity-like investments and other products 
from this offshore entity that is now defunct.

These investments were too risky and illiquid for many of these customers, who 
wanted the protections and stability provided by financial products found in 
the United States. Yet dozens of brokerage firms appear to have marketed and 
sold Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) to their clients, including retail 
customers and retirees who had conservative investing goals and low risk 
tolerance levels.

This is why our skilled Northstar Financial Services (Bermuda) investor losses 
attorneys ( 
) have filed another Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) 
arbitration claim against Bankoh Investment Services and one of its brokers. 
The claimants are a retired Japanese couple who worked with Honolulu-based 
financial advisor Yoko Farias ( 
). She allegedly essentially 100% concentrated their money in high-risk 
products. Now, these Japanese retirees are seeking up to $500K in damages.

    -- Were you properly apprised of the risks involved or were 
       misrepresentations and omissions made about your investment?
    -- Was your portfolio overconcentrated Northstar Financial Services 
       (Bermuda) and other high-risk investments by your broker-dealer?
