Have you suffered losses in the Ziegler Healthcare Fund? If so, you may be able to recover your losses through a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm/financial professional that solicited that investment.
As stated on their website “Ziegler Healthcare Funds (ZHF) I-III are a series of senior mortgage, mezzanine debt and equity investments made in healthcare companies throughout the United States.”
Private placements are generally created to raise capital. According to SEC rule 506 of Regulation D this type of security should only be offered to sophisticated investors with sufficient knowledge and experience of the prospective investment industry.
Private placements are often illiquid, very risky, and complexly structured. Financial details are often not disclosed and these securities are not typically sold on the open market.
The high sales commission earned by brokers for selling these types of investments often provides the motive to sell private placements to investors that do not have the requisite investment experience to understand the risks entailed. It is the fiduciary duty of the brokerage-firm or financial adviser to put the client’s financial objects above their own profit.
Brokers who do not demonstrate sufficient due diligence prior to the sale of private placements can be liable for losses suffered through FINRA arbitration.
The White Law Group continues to investigate the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk private placements, like Ziegler Healthcare Fund, to their clients.
