Investigating Potential Claims involving Gulf South Energy Partners 2011 A LP
Did you lose money investing in Gulf South Energy Partners 2011 A LP? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
Gulf South Holding, Inc. engages in oil and gas exploration and production. The company was incorporated in 2008 and is based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The company raises money through Reg D private placements such as Gulf Shores Energy Partners 2011 A LP.
The trouble with Reg D Private Placements, like Gulf South Energy Partners 2011 A LP, 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.
An additional risk inherent to Gulf South offerings is also the general risk that comes with the energy market. The energy market has seen enormous losses over the last few years due to the declining cost of oil and other energy commodities. These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.
Many oil and gas LPs are struggling to make distribution payments and some may end up defunct.

Broker dealers that sell private placements are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment recommendation that is made is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
Alternative investments such as these, have high sales commissions and due diligence fees. These high commissions and fees can provide brokers with an enormous incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks. They may even focus on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks.
Fortunately, FINRA does provide for an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes. If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
