CNL Growth Properties Investment Losses
Have you suffered investment losses in CNL Growth Properties? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.
CNL Growth Properties Inc., one of several non-traded REITs managed by Orlando-based CNL Financial Group, has decided to liquidate all of its multifamily properties and dissolve the company after completing a review of strategic options.
According to SEC filings, as of December 31, 2014 the REIT was valued at $9.40 per share. However, investors looking to sell their shares may have trouble finding a buyer willing to pay the estimated price. LPsales.com, a secondary market for private placements, sold shares of CNL Growth Properties in August for only $8.25 per share.
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.
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.
