FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund Risk Factors
(from the prospectus)
-An investment in common shares is not suitable for an investor if they need access to the money they invest.
-Shareholders should consider that they may not have access to the money they invest for an indefinite period of time.
-Unlike an investor in most closed-end funds, shareholders should not expect to be able to sell their common shares regardless of how performs.
-If a shareholder is able to sell their common shares, the shareholder will likely receive less than their purchase price and the then current NAV per common share.
Risks of BDCs
Business Development Companies operate much in the same was as REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) with non-traded BDCs having many of the same problems for investors as non-traded REITs – like high-risk, high commissions, and lack of liquidity.
The White Law Group has represented a number of investors over the last few years in BDCs. The firm continues to investigate the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high-risk BDCs, like FS Global Credit Opportunities Fund, and other Franklin Square offerings.
Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of that particular investor’s age, investment experience, net worth, risk tolerance, investment objectives, and income. Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence or that make unsuitable recommendations can be held responsible for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
