Morgan Stanley Alternative Investment Partners (AIP) is part of Morgan Stanley Investment Management. The company specializes in assisting institutional and high net worth investors achieve their goals through the design and management of alternative investment programs, according to the website.
The company filed a Regulation D for the private placement offering, AIP Private Markets Fund VI LP, in 2013 in West Conshohocken, PA.
Are Private Placement Investments Suitable for you?
Private placement investments are often sold as unregistered securities and lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products. Alternative investments such as AIP Private Markets Fund VI LP are generally considered high risk, compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. They should only be sold to high worth, sophisticated investors.
The high sales commission brokers earn for selling interests in private placements may provide some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors. Some brokers may actually downplay the risks associated with alternative investments and mislead investors into thinking that they are “safe” investment products.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
If your financial advisor makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be 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.
