Concerned about investment losses in Texas Energy Holdings Drilling Program?
Have you suffered investment losses in Texas Energy Holdings Drilling Program? 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.
Texas Energy Holdings is a privately-held independent oil and natural gas company that focuses on acquiring income-producing properties and developmental drilling in proven producing fields. Their portfolio of assets encompasses premier positions of U.S. oil and natural gas resource plays with the majority of their development in Texas and Oklahoma.
Texas Energy Holdings often raises money for investments through Reg D private placement offerings like the company did for Texas Energy Holdings Drilling Program. These Reg D private placements are then typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission, usually between 7-10%.
The Problem with Reg D Private Placements
The trouble with alternative investment products, like Texas Energy Holdings Drilling Program, is that they involve a high degree of risk and are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks and bonds. An additional risk inherent to Texas Energy Holdings Drilling Program offerings is also the general risk that comes with the energy market – a market that has seen enormous losses over the last few years.
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.
However, another problem with Reg D private placements is that the high sales commission brokers earn for selling such products sometimes can provide some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks of these types of investments.
Fortunately, FINRA does provide for an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes and if a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
