Jeffrey Schwebach, formerly with Independent Financial Group, Suspended from Securities Industry

We are looking into allegations made by FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) against Jeffrey P. Schwebach. FINRA suspended Schwebach from the securities industry for eight months and ordered him to disgorge over $19,000 in commissions. Schwebach was being investigated regarding allegations that he sold $895,000 in investments in the Woodbridge Group of Companies.
Last year, Woodbridge filed for bankruptcy, and investors will likely suffer substantial losses. This is at least the third former Independent Financial Group representative who has been punished by regulators for selling Woodbridge investments.
