Securities Fraud Investigation Involving Cypress Equipment Leasing Fund Investments

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Have you suffered losses in a Cypress Equipment Leasing Fund private placement investment?  If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses.

According to its website, Cypress Financial Corporation is a privately held manager of investment programs. The company invests in partnerships, leases, and portfolio acquisitions of equipment in transportation, energy, and industrial sectors.

Examples of some of their investment transaction include equity interests in an oil drilling platform and nuclear power plant. Other transactions include residual interests in portfolio refrigerated trailers and equity ownership of a locomotives portfolio.

Cypress Leasing has offered a number of private placements in order to raise capital. These high risk private placements were then offered to the public by various registered broker-dealers who had established selling agreements with Cypress Capital Corporation.

Investor trying to figure out what is going on with their Cypress Equipment Leasing investment may have difficulty finding the information they are seeking. Private placement offerings are not regulated in the same way as other investments and information regarding the investment is not disclosed in the same manner.

The high sales commission associated with the sale of private placements often provides brokerage firms with incentive to push the sale of private placements, often onto unsuitable clients.  Brokerage firms have an obligation to make investment recommendations suitable for an individual’s age, net worth, and risk liability.

The White Law Group continues to investigate the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk private placements such as Cypress Equipment Fund VII, Cypress Equipment Fund VIII, Cypress Equipment Fund IX, Cypress Equipment Fund X, Cypress Equipment Fund XI, Cypress Equipment Fund XII, Cypress Equipment Fund 13, Cypress Equipment Fund 14, Cypress Equipment Fund 15, Cypress Equipment Fund 16, Cypress Equipment Fund 17, and Cypress Growth Fund.
