Have you suffered investment losses in Healthcare Trust of America, Inc.? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase risky non-traded REIT investments, including Healthcare Trust of America.
FINRA recently announced that it is paying close attention to the sale of REITs 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).
Due to the relatively high interest or dividend offered by non-traded REITs like Healthcare Trust of America, retired investors are often attracted to these products.
According to its website, Healthcare Trust of America is a “fully integrated, self-administered, self-managed real estate investment trust.” Since its formation in 2006, Healthcare Trust of America has invested approximately $2.5 billion in various real estate projects.
In a recent SEC filing, Healthcare Trust of America announced that it would be taking the REIT public, with an anticipated ticker symbol of “HTA.”
Although, Healthcare Trust of America is seeking an IPO price of at least $10.10 per share, according to the filing, in light of Inland Western REIT’s recent IPO and the fact that the market set the share price considerably lower than Inland Western had anticipated, it is certainly possible that Healthcare Trust of America’s initial share price will be lower than anticipated.
The White Law Group’s investigation into the improper sales of non-traded REITs to investors is not limited to Healthcare Trust of America. The firm is also representing investors in claims against their brokerage firm involving the following non-traded REITs: Behringer Harvard REIT I, 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 KBS REIT.
