Natural Resource Partners LP Investment Losses
Have you suffered losses investing in Natural Resource Partners LP MLP? If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses in a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the investment.
A Master Limited Partnership (MLP) is a type of limited partnership that is publicly traded. MLP’s receive the same tax benefits of a limited partnership combined with the liquidity of a publically traded security. In order to be classified as an MLP the partnership must receive 90% of its cash flow from a “qualifying source” – such as real estate, natural resources or commodities.
Natural Resource Partners L.P. owns and manages coal properties in Appalachia, the Illinois Basin, and the Western United States. The Company leases coal reserves to experienced mine operators under long-term leases that grant the operator the right to mine its coal reserves in exchange for royalty payments. According to Bloomberg, the MLP is down over 86% in the last year.
MLP’s are extremely complex and risky. They are only suitable for wealthy, sophisticated retail investors or institutional investors.
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.
