Recovery of BNI Equity Real Estate Investment Losses

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)

Have you suffered investment losses in a BNI Equities, LLC, BNI Notes, or BNI tenant in common (or TIC) investment?  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 tenant-in-common and real estate investments, including real estate investments offered by BNI.

Real estate private placement investments typically pay a high commission – often as much as 10% (which often explains the stockbroker’s motivation in recommending the investment to the investor).

The White Law Group has handled many FINRA arbitrations involving TIC and other real estate investments and have found that in many cases the broker-dealers that recommended these investments failed to perform the necessary due diligence on the investments prior to recommending them for sale to their clients.  The brokerage firms also often failed to determine whether the investments were appropriate for the client in light of the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, and investment objectives.

Structured real estate investments can involve high risks and liquidity problems and in many cases brokerage firms misrepresent these risks and instead focus on the income stream that is promised (and sometimes guaranteed) by these investments.  It is this income stream that often made these real estate investments appealing to retired investors who sought income during retirement, but who also didn’t realize the risks involved with these investments.

If you have questions about a BNI real estate investment you purchased through a financial professional or broker-dealer, please call The White Law Group’s Chicago office at 312/238-9650 for a free consultation.

The White Law Group, LLC is a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, investor protection, and securities regulation/compliance law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Boca Raton, Florida.
