The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase risky non-traded REIT investments, including Dividend Capital Total Realty Trust.
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 Dividend Capital Total Realty Trust, retired investors are often attracted to these products. Unfortunately, in addition to be risky investments, non-traded REITs are also illiquid (limiting investors’ ability to access their own money for unforeseen expenses).
Another problem with non-traded REITs is that broker-dealers are not required to frequently update the current price of the investment. This often leads investors to believe that there REIT investment is doing well even though the widespread real estate market collapse would indicate otherwise.
