This week, Peter “Pete the Planner” Dunn and host Mason King talk about spotting the emotions like envy, fear and shame that can lead to poor financial decision making.
David A. Noyes & Co. has helped raise money for companies—including Indianapolis-based Digonex Technologies Inc. and Fishers-based SteadyServ Technologies LLC—by persuading its clients to invest. But such investments, known as private placements, are risky by nature—and Noyes’ clients have not always been happy with the results.
The legal situation is increasingly complex for Kerri Agee, who in March was indicted on federal fraud charges in connection with her now-defunct Westfield financial services firm.
When it comes to investing, not only do too many people misconstrue knowledge for skill, but beyond that, people tend to make a series of predictable mistakes brought on by inexperience. Therefore, even if you find yourself in the “I know what I’m doing” camp, you might not have the rest of what it takes to succeed long term.
Mark Damer of Carmel, 62, filed suit against Noyes last month in Hamilton Superior Court. Damer’s complaint says his termination was in violation of the employment agreement he had signed months earlier, and that, after his termination, Noyes denied him access to records related to the Bayley Investment Group.
