American Finance Trust – Securities Investigation
The White Law Group continues to investigate potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended American Finance Trust to investors.
American Finance Trust, Inc. is a real estate investment trust launched and managed by American Financial Advisors, LLC. It invests in real estate markets of United States. It was formerly known as American Realty Capital Trust V, Inc. The REIT was formed on January 22, 2013 and is based in the United States, according to Bloomberg.
Unfortunately for investors, Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market for private placements, is listing shares of American Finance Trust for just $15.65 per share. That’s significantly less than the original purchase price of $25.00 per share.
The Trouble with Non-Traded REITs
Non-traded REITS, like American Finance Trust, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk than traditional investments such as stocks and bonds. Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs.
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 inline 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 through FINRA Arbitration. 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
