The Trouble with Reg D Private Placements
Oil and gas private placements, like many of the Noble investment products, are often speculative ventures
The trouble with Reg D private placements, like Oak Royalties LLC, is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment recommendation is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
Another problem with Reg D private placements is that the high sales commissions and due diligence fees the brokers earn for selling such products may provide brokers with an enormous incentive to push the product. Unsophisticated investors may not fully understand the risks of these types of investments. Brokers may even misrepresent the basic features of the products –focusing on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks.
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 found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
