Are Non-Traded REITs suitable for you?

Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITS, such as American Finance Trust are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk. Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs. It can often be difficult to find a buyer when ready to sell.

Currently, Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market for private placements, is listing shares of American Finance Trust for $15.50 per share. That’s significantly less than the original purchase price of $25.00 per share.

The White Law Group has represented numerous investors in claims against the brokerage firms that recommended non-traded REITs to investors.

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.

Broker dealers that fail to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations can be held liable for investment losses.
