Investor Alert: ATEL Growth Capital Fund 9

(Last Updated On: May 12, 2016)

Have you suffered investment losses in ATEL Growth Capital Fund 9 LLC? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

According to a Form-D filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, ATEL Growth Capital Fund 9 is a limited liability company organized in 2014 and promoted by Atel Capital Group.

Limited liability companies, like ATEL Growth Capital Fund 9, involve a much greater degree of risk compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Interest in limited liability companies (LLC) are typically sold as unregistered securities and lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products.

Unfortunately, some brokers may have downplayed the risks associated with alternative investments and misled investors into thinking that they are “safe” investment products. The high sales commission brokers earn for selling such products, as high as 9% according to ATEL Growth Capital Fund 9 Form- D, may have provided some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors.

Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations to ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.

If a broker makes an unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses.
