Have you suffered investment losses in the Behringer Harvard Short-Term Opportunity Fund? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help.
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims on behalf of investors involving broker-dealers recommendation that investors purchase risky investments, including the Behringer Harvard Short-Term Opportunity Fund.
It is being reported that investors in the Behringer Harvard Short-Term Opportunity Fund I LP, which had about $130 million in total assets, recently saw its valuation drop to 40 cents a share (down drastically from $6.48 a share Dec. 31, 2010).
FINRA recently announced that it is paying close attention to the sale of REITs (like the Behringer Harvard Short-Term Opportunity Fund I LP).and, in particular, the ways in which broker/dealers marketed and sold the products to investors. In many cases, and notwithstanding the risk of REIT investments, broker-dealers marketed these investments as safe and secure.
REITs typically pay a high commission – often as much as 15% (which often explains the stockbroker’s motivation in recommending the REIT investment to the investor).
The White Law Group’s investigation into the improper sales of REITs to investors includes, but is not limited to, recommendations to invest in the following REITs: KBS REIT, Inland America Real Estate Trust, Inland Western Retail Real Estate Trust, Wells Real Estate Investment Trust II, Piedmont Office Realty Trust, Desert Capital REIT, Apple REIT, Crystal River REIT, and Behringer Harvard REITs.
