Investor Alert: GTJ REIT Inc.
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk REITs, like GTJ REIT, to their clients.
GTJ REIT Inc. is a fully integrated, self-administered and self-managed, public, non-listed REIT engaged in the acquisition, ownership, management and operation of commercial real estate in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic areas, according to their website.
Update on January 23, 2018
According to reports, GTJ REIT has an infinite life, and it has said it has no plans to list its shares. The Company now has a share redemption program ( as of January 2018), but in its very first period (payment in December) it was
oversubscribed so shares were purchased pro-rata (at 90% of estimated value). Redemptions will not
be made again until June 2018 and there can be no assurance that you will be able to redeem all of
your shares at that time.
The Risks of REITs
REITs are complicated and often risky investments which should only be sold to high-net worth and sophisticated investors.
Notwithstanding the risks of investing in REITs, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation. Brokerage firms generally make between 7-10% for selling a REIT, which is far in excess of the typical commission for more traditional investment types.
If you suffered losses investing in GTJ REIT or another real estate investment trust, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA Arbitration.
