Private Placement Investments – Are they suitable for you?
Amfuel filed a Form D to raise capital in 2015. Reg D private placement investments such as this are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.
The problem with private placement investments such as AmFuel Holdings LLC is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds. These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.
Investigating Potential Claims
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk private placements, like AmFuel Holdings LLC to their clients.
Despite the risks of investing in private placements, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.
