Concerned about your investment?  – Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VII Global

The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VII Global to investors.

Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VII Global is a real estate investment fund. The fund seeks to make non-controlling investments of between $30 million and $100 million in the securities of real estate companies globally, but predominantly in emerging markets, United States, and internationally with a focus on Europe and Asia.

This fund is a Regulation D private placement investment. The trouble with alternative investment products, like Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund VII Global, 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.

Another issue with alternative investments is that the 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 misrepresent the basic features of the products – usually focusing on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks.

Alternative investments  – Are they suitable for you?

Broker dealers that sell alternative investments 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.

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.  Fortunately, FINRA does provide for an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes.
