The Trouble with Non-traded REITs
The trouble with non-traded REITs, like KBS Real Estate Investment Trust II, is that they are complex and inherently risky products.
Broker dealers are required to inform clients of the risks associated with investment recommendations and to ensure that those recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience. Firms that fail to do so may be held responsible for any losses.
Lack of liquidity is often problematic for many investors. Investors looking to sell often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
