Are you concerned about your investment in Baqua Inc.? The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended high risk private placement investments such as Baqua Inc. Inc.

According to Bloomberg, Baqua Inc. produces and supplies organic ancient grain and fruit juice beverages. The company also offers hemp infused beverages. Baqua, Inc. is based in Lexington, Kentucky.

Baqua Inc. is a Regulation D Private Placement investment. Investments such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.

The problem with private placement investments such as Baqua Inc. is that they often 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. Lack of Liquidity can also be a problem for investors.

Currently CFX Auctions, a secondary market website for private placements, is listing shares of Baqua Inc. for just $2.24/share. This may be a significant loss to investors.

FINRA Dispute Resolution

Despite the risks of investing in private placements, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations 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.
