New York, NY: A preliminary $27 million settlement has been agreed in a securities class action suit filed against Ameriprise Financial Inc. The suit, filed by clients of Ameriprise's independant-brokerage unit, alleged that the private placement interests sold in two companies - Medical Capital and Provident Royalties -- that went bankrupt in 2009 - were ponzi schemes.
