Securities Investigation – Resource Income Opportunity REIT

According to Bloomberg, Resource Income Opportunity REIT, Inc., was organized in Maryland on June 25, 2014. The publicly registered non-traded REIT changed its name from Resource Innovation Office REIT to Resource Income & Opportunity REIT, and finally to Resource Income Opportunity REIT.

According to SEC filings, on May 7, 2018, Resource Income Opportunity REIT, Inc. announced that its board of directors had approved the termination of its continuous public offering and approved and adopted a plan of liquidation and dissolution.

The Board also terminated the distribution reinvestment plan, share repurchase program effective May 8, 2018.

The Trouble with Non-traded REITs

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

Broker dealers are required to inform clients of the risks associated with investment recommendations and to 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.

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.
