Investigating Potential Claims in Fallbrook Technologies
The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Fallbrook Technologies to investors.
According to its website, Fallbrook Technologies is the inventor of the revolutionary NuVinci® continuously variable planetary (CVP) technology, which enables performance and efficiency improvements for machines that use an engine, pump, motor, or geared transmission system – including urban mobility vehicles, cars and trucks, industrial equipment, and many other applications.
Fallbrook is based in Cedar Park near Austin, Texas. The company filed a Form D in 2010 to raise capital from investors.
Regulation D Private placement investments such as Fallbrook Technologies, 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.
