In a recent letter to Investors, Sonoma Ridge Capital announced that steps have been taken to liquidate portions of the portfolio. However, the letter states that, ‘unexpected economic and other circumstances have made the future development of [Sonoma Ridge Capital]’s other assets more difficult to predict.”
The letter goes on to discuss the status of the portfolio’s assets. Many of which may be disconcerting for investors. For example, a condominium project property sold in Parker, Arizona, that was subject to various property line disputes and government penalties, resulted in a net sales proceeds of $196,000. Due to “various complexities,” Sonoma Ridge Capital estimates their share of the proceeds to be approximately $30,000 after expenses.
In Michigan, 29 residential lots SPR acquired were marketed at a lower price in face of “current economic conditions.” The property was sold and Sonoma Ridge Capital recovered $34,317 in proceeds, which they expect to use to cover outstanding expenses.
While some of the assets in Sonoma Ridge Capital’s portfolio may be more promising, many investors are wondering what their broker got them into. Formerly known as Jadda Secured Senior Mortgage Fund, the investment was sold to investors as a private placement and is exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Private placements are inherently risky and lack regulatory oversight, making them better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors.
Broker dealers that solicit private placements are required to perform adequate due diligence to ensure that investment recommendation are suitable for each individual investor. The investment should be in line with regulatory guidelines that include the client’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience. If a broker fails to make suitable investment recommendations, they may be liable for investment losses.
