Are private placement investments suitable for you?
Private placement investments such as Gramercy Property Trust, are sold as unregistered securities and lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products. This type of investment generally involves a much greater degree of risk compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
Some brokers may have downplayed the risks associated with alternative investments and misled investors into thinking that they are “safe” investment products.
The high sales commission brokers earn for selling interests in limited partnerships may have provided some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors.
Broker dealers are required by law 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 a broker makes an unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses.
