The Trouble with REITs
REITs are complex high risk securities that lack liquidity and making them unsuitable for many investors. Unfortunately, the high commissions associated with a REIT often will provide some broker-dealers with enough incentive to downplay the risks and overlook FINRA suitability rules when making investment recommendations to clients.
The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation of Behringer Harvard offerings, such as Behringer Harvard Columbia REIT.
Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.
Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
