The firms that have been most prominent in Mr. Rosca’s discussions with UDF investors are: IMS Securities Inc., Berthel Fisher & Co. Financial Services Inc., Centaurus Financial Inc. and VSR Financial Services Inc.Those four firms were not the only ones that sold the UDF REITs, but are the most widely named in discussions with investors, he added.
