Securities Investigation – The Opportunity Fund LLC
Are you concerned about your investment in The Opportunity Fund LLC? If so, the securities attorneys at 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.
According to SEC filings, The Opportunity Fund LLC is a Regulation D Private Placement offering that was formed in 2008 in Columbus, Ohio to raise capital from investors. The fund is listed as a private equity fund and the total offering amount is $4,000,000.00.
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 The Opportunity Fund 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. These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.
The Risks of Private Placement Investments
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for unsuitably recommending high-risk private placements, like The Opportunity Fund, to investors.
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.
