DCG/UGOC Equity Fund – Investigating Potential Claims

DCG/UGOC Equity Fund

Concerned about investment losses in DCG/UGOC Equity Fund?

The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker-dealers who may have unsuitably recommended DCG/UGOC Equity Fund to investors.

DCG/UGOC Equity Fund is a Regulation D Private Placement investment. It was filed in 2012 in Troy, New York. The total offering amount was $30,000,000.

Investments such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.

The problem with private placement investments such as DCG/UGOC Equity Fund is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.  These investments may seem wise at first, until the dramatic drop in distributions.

Securities Investigation – DCG/UGOC Equity Fund

Despite the risks of investing in private placements, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA ) operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States, and has extensive experience in providing a fair, efficient and effective venue to handle a securities-related dispute.
