Generally speaking, private placements are not subject to some of the laws and regulations that are designed to protect investors, such as the comprehensive disclosure requirements that apply to registered offerings.  Private and public companies engage in private placements to raise funds from investors.

Are Private Placement investments suitable for you?

Private Placement investments such as Woodbridge Mortgage Investment Fund I should only be sold to high net worth, knowledgeable investors.

Your broker has a duty to conduct a reasonable investigation of the investment and the issuer’s representations about it.
