Investigating Potential Claims Involving BDCA
Did you lose money investing in BDCA at the recommendation of your broker? If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
Business Development Corporation of America (“BDCA”) is a non-traded business development company that invests in first and second lien senior secured loans and mezzanine debt issued by middle market companies.
The company commenced its initial public offering in January 2011 and raised $1.9 billion before closing the offering in April 2015. The annualized yield for distributions was 7.78 percent based on its then public offering price of $11.15 per share.
Unfortunately for investors, Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market for private placements, is offering to purchase shares of BDCA for $7.25 per share. That’s significantly less than the original purchase price.
Was the Investment Recommendation Suitable for You?
The White Law Group continues to investigate potential claims against the broker dealers that sold high risk investments, like BDCA, onto unsuspecting investors.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be appropriate in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
If your broker dealer fails to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations, they can be held liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
If you have suffered losses investing in BDCA and would like to speak to a securities attorney about the potential to recover your investment losses, please call The White Law Group at 1-888-637-5510 for a free consultation.
