Securities Investigation – Calliance Realty Fund
The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker-dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Calliance Realty Fund to investors.
Calliance Realty Fund is a Regulation D Private Placement investment. Capital Alliance Advisors is the manager of the fund. It was filed in 2011 in San Francisco, CA. The total offering amount was $25,000,000.
Investments such as these 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%. According to the Form D filing, “total sales commissions to participating broker-dealers will be 9.5% of the gross proceeds.”
The problem with private placement investments such as Calliance Realty Fund 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.
Unsuitable Investment Recommendation?
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.
If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States, and has extensive experience in providing a fair, efficient and effective venue to handle a securities-related dispute.
