Investigating Potential Claims involving RJO Global Trust
The White Law Group is investigating the liability broker-dealers may have for unsuitability recommending RJO Global Trust to investors.
According to the website, R.J. O’Brien & Associates LLC is the oldest and largest independent futures brokerage and clearing firm in the United States. RJO Global Trust is a registered fund which claims to offer a diversified investment approach and “to potentially provide one’s portfolio with greater overall diversification.”
Is a Private Placement Investment Suitable for you?
RJ O’Brien raised money by offering Regulation D private placements like the company did with RJO Global Trust. Private placements are unregistered securities and can be very risky. They are not regulated with the same scrutiny as stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
Private Placements, such as RJO Global Trust, are not suitable for all investors. A Private placement investment has inherent risks, including tying up investment monies for long periods of time. There is also the risk of loss to some or all of the investment. Brokers have a duty to investigate private placements and determine the suitability for their clients.
According to the Financial Industry Regulatory (FINRA) Rules, member firms are responsible for supervising a broker’s activities while the broker is registered with the firm. If you suffered losses investing in RJO Global Trust, the brokerage firm may possibly be held liable for those investment losses.
Investors can file an arbitration claim or request mediation through FINRA when they have a dispute involving the business activities of a brokerage firm or one if its brokers. The White Law Group may be able to help you.
