According to marketing material, Prefered Income Partners IV was the fourth in a series of real estate offerings by Rainer Capital Management. The three previous funds were said to have produced returns of 8%. Unfortunately, it is unclear if Prefered Income Partners IV has had similar success.
Prefered Income Partners IV was sold to investors as a type of private placement. Typically, private placements are high risk products better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors. They are exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange commission and therefore lack the same regulatory oversight compared to more traditional securities products such as stocks or mutual funds.
Another problem, is the high sales commissions often associated with private placements. In certain cases the sales commission may provide some brokers with enough incentive to over look suitability requirements. According to filings with the SEC, the sales commission associated with Prefered Income Partners IV is approximately 6.5%.
