Investigation Involving Inland American Real Estate Trust

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)

Have you suffered investment losses in Inland American Real Estate Trust? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.

Inland American is a real estate investment trust incorporated in October 2004. The company formed to own, manage, acquire and develop a diversified portfolio of commercial real estate located throughout the United States.

REITs are complex high risk securities that lack liquidity and making them unsuitable for many investors. Unfortunately, the high commissions associated with REITs often provides some broker-dealers with enough incentive to downplay the risks and overlook FINRA suitability rules when making investment recommendations to clients.

According recent SEC filings, as of February 4, 2015 the REIT was valued at $4.00 per share. For many investors, the current value of the REIT is significantly lower than the initial purchase price.

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that some investors purchase REIT investments. Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.

Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
