RK Properties Opportunity Fund Investment Losses

(Last Updated On: October 18, 2016)

Have you suffered losses investing in RK Properties Opportunity Fund? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help.

According to a Form-D filed with the SEC, RK Properties Opportunity Fund is a limited liability company organized in 2008 and sponsored by Rance King Properties. According to their website, Rance King Properties Inc.( dba RK Properties) is a Delaware corporation that has specialized in multifamily investments since 1976. Rance King Securities Corporation is a California corporation that was formed in 1984 and acts as the placement agent for investment products sponsored by RK Properties. Both RK Properties and Rance King Securities Corporation are owned by William Rance King, Jr., who is both a registered FINRA Principal and a California licensed real estate broker.

Limited liability companies, like RK Properties Opportunity Fund, generally involve a much greater degree of risk compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. Interests in limited liability companies (LLC) are often 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 interests in limited liability companies 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.
