Investigating Potential Claims in EnerVest Energy

Have you suffered losses investing in EnerVest Energy offerings? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA Arbitration.

According to various reports, EnerVest’s $2 billion energy fund that borrowed heavily to buy up oil and gas wells when crude prices were high has basically gone bust. Reportedly, major pensions and other investors could be left with just pennies on the dollar at best.

The loss is unusual for a private equity firm of EnerVest’s size and raises concerns that similar funds offered by competitors could fail.

The size of the loss is highly unusual for a private equity firm of EnerVest’s size. Just a handful of private equity outfits worth at least $1 billion have lost money for investors, and even then, losses of 25 percent or more are virtually unprecedented, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing analysis by investment firm Cambridge Associates and public pension records.
