Have you suffered financial losses as a result of your purchase of a Catalyst Energy Limited Partnership? If so, The White Law Group may be able to recover some of your losses in a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firms that recommended the investment.
According to there website, Catalyst Energy, Inc. specializes in the development of oil and natural gas resources in the Appalachian region of northwestern Pennsylvania. In recent years, Catalyst Energy has offered multiple limited partnerships.
Unfortunately, certain brokerage firms may have failed to adequality disclose the risks associated with the investment. Limited partnerships, especially oil and gas interests, are complex high risk products that often lack liquidity. It appears that some brokers downplayed the risk and mislead investors into thinking these were “safe” investments.
Compared to exchanged traded investments such as stocks or bonds, limited partnerships offer extremely high sales commission. Often this provides some brokers with enough incentive to overlook suitability requirements when selling partnership units. Broker dealers that sold Catalyst Energy 2012-1 earned a sales commission of approximately 5%, according to the SEC files.
Broker dealers that overlook the FINRA suitability requirements or mislead investors regarding risks can be liable for investment losses through FINRA dispute resolution.
