Liberty Wealth’s Greg Richards Involved in Multiple Complaints


Greg Richards (CRD# 1339012), a broker registered with Kingswood Capital Partners, allegedly recommended illiquid investments that led to six-figure damages, according to investor disputes. These disputes are disclosed on his Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) BrokerCheck report, a public record accessed on June 30, 2023. The Scottsdale, Arizona broker is also the owner of Liberty Wealth Management.

Investor Disputes Allege 7-Figure Damages

Between July 2022 and April 2023, four parties of investors filed disputes alleging that Mr. Richards recommended unsuitable investments. The investments at issue in these disputes include oil and gas products, real estate products, and corporate bonds. The four disputes, which remain pending, seek cumulative damages of more than $1.5 million.

Past Disputes Also Alleged Suitability Violations

The above-described pending claims are not the only investor disputes in which Mr. Richards has been involved. According to his BrokerCheck record, two investors or parties of investors filed disputes involving him between 2008 and 2018. These claims stemmed from allegations that he recommended unsuitable products, including fixed annuity and real estate investments, and that he made an unauthorized transaction. In both cases his member firm settled the disputes, with the settlements totaling $45,258.
