High Risk REITs
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are complex and inherently risky products. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, REITs are significantly more complex. They are often better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors.
Brokers can earn especially high commissions when they recommend REITs –as high as 15%. Brokers have an obligation to make investment recommendations that are consistent with their clients risk tolerance, net worth, investment objectives and experience in the market. Often, the high sales commission may provide some brokers with enough incentive to make unsuitable investment recommendations.
In addition to the high risks, non-traded REITs, like Corporate Property Associates 18 Global A often lack liquidity. Investors looking to sell these investments often have difficulty finding a buyer, and if they are able to find one can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Currently, Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market for private placements is listing shares of Corporate Property Associates 18 Global A for just $7.70 per share. Unfortunately for many investors, it appears that the secondary market price would represent a significant loss on their initial capital investment.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Firms that fail to do so, may be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
