KBS REIT II – Securities Investigation – Recover your Losses

(Last Updated On: January 4, 2018)

Concerned about investment losses in KBS REIT II?

Have you suffered losses investing in KBS REIT II at the recommendation of your financial advisor? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

KBS REIT II is a non-traded real estate investment trust based in Newport Beach, CA. The REIT went effective in April 2008 and closed its primary offering in March 2011 after raising $1.8 billion in investor equity.

In June 2016, KBS Real Estate Investment Trust I and II announced plans to liquidate their assets, joining two sister REITs, KBS Legacy Partners Apartment REIT and KBS Strategic Opportunity REIT.

Unfortunately for investors, CFX Alternative Trading, a secondary market for private placements, is listing shares of KBS REIT II for just $4.45 per share. That could mean a significant loss for you, as the original purchase price was $10.00 per share.

Are Non-traded REITs suitable for you?

The White Law Group has handled a number of claims involving non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) such as KBS REIT II.

The trouble with non-traded REITs, like KBS REIT II, is that they are complex and inherently risky products.

Broker dealers are required to inform clients of the risks associated with investment recommendations. They must ensure that those recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience. Firms that fail to do so may be held responsible for any losses through FINRA arbitration.

Lack of liquidity is often problematic for many investors.  Investors looking to sell often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
