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 non-traded REITs as well as BDCs. The firm continues to investigate the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high-risk BDCs, like Corporate Capital Trust.
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.
