Recovery of NNN Wesley Paces TIC losses

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Have you suffered losses in NNN Wesley Paces? If so, the White Law Group may be able to help recoup some of your loses.

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase risky tenant-in-common (or TIC) investments, including NNN Wesley Paces.

Many investors were attracted to the potentially high returns offered by TICs, especially retired investors seeking a source of income. Unfortunately, TICs are high risk, speculative investments and arguably unsuitable for most investors since the TICs performance and ability to make distributions to investors is dependent on the underlying real estate property and the overall health of the real estate market.

In addition, TICs typically pay a high commission – often as much as 10%. Unfortunately for investors, these high commissions provide enough motivation for some brokers to overlook suitability issues when recommending TICs to clients.

The White Law Group has handled many FINRA arbitrations involving TIC investments, like NNN Wesley Paces TIC, and have found that in many cases the broker-dealers that recommended these investments failed to perform the necessary due diligence on the investments prior to recommending them for sale to their clients.

If you have concerns about NNN Wesley Paces TIC, please call The White Law Group’s Chicago office at (312)238-9650 for a free consultation.

Continued Investigation into Priority Income Fund

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Have you suffered losses investing in Behringer Harvard Priority Income Fund, formerly Priority Senior Secured Income Fund ? If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses in a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the investment.

Priority Income Fund in an investment portfolio primarily consisting of seniors secured loans or collateralized loan obligations (CLOs). The fund is a closed-end fund that is not publicly traded. As such, the fund does not expect a secondary market to form so investors should not expect to be able to sell their shares.

Fixed-income investors are often attracted to closed-end funds because many of the funds are designed to provide a steady stream of income, usually on a monthly or quarterly basis as opposed to the biannual payments provided by individual bonds.

According to the Prospectus ” These investments [senior secured loans], which are often referred to as “junk” or “high yield,” have predominantly speculative characteristics with respect to the issuer’s capacity to pay interest and repay principal. They may also be difficult to value and illiquid.”

Closed-end funds will commonly employ leverage to enhance their yields. With this extra leverage comes additional risk. It is this risk that makes closed-end funds unsuitable for conservative investors.

Brokerage firms and financial advisers have an obligation to insure that an investment is appropriate in light of the investor’s age, net worth, income, investment experience, and investment objectives. If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable recommendation, investors may have an actionable claim to recover their investment losses through a FINRA arbitration.

If you suffered losses in a closed-end fund like the Behringer Harvard Priority Income Fund and would like to speak to a securities attorney about whether you have a potential FINRA dispute resolution claim, please call The White Law Group’s Chicago office at 312/238-9650 for a free consultation.
