Montana Sues Securities America Over Medical Capital Investments

Securities America has once again caught the attention of securities regulators over risky sales in Medical Capital Holdings. This time, Montana’s State Securities Commission is suing Securities America.

In January, Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin filed the first lawsuit against Securities America, accusing the broker/dealer of failing to reveal key information about failed private placements in Medical Capital.

According to the Montana lawsuit, Securities America and several of its top executives, including new chief executive James Nagengast, allegedly “withheld material information regarding heightened risks” from its representatives and their clients regarding notes issued by Medical Capital Holdings.

Securities America brokers sold $698 million worth of the notes from 2003 to 2008 and “concealed these risks” from its brokers and their clients, the Montana lawsuit contends.

In total, Medical Capital sold $2.2 billion of notes through dozens of independent broker-dealers, a number of which have failed or shut down. Securities America is the broker/dealer that sold the largest amount of Medical Capital notes.

Securities America is facing a number of lawsuits and arbitration claims from disgruntled investors who lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in their Medical Capital investments.
