InvenTrust Properties

Securities Investigation – InvenTrust Properties

Have you suffered losses investing in InvenTrust Properties (formerly Inland America)? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

 InvenTrust Properties is a non-traded Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT). Investors looking to sell non-traded REITs such as InvenTrust Properties Corp. often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale. Lack of liquidity is often problematic for many investors. 

According to a SEC Filings, Liquidity Partners Trust I, a private real estate investment firm, filed a tender offer statement on Schedule TO on October 30, 2017, seeking to purchase 2,000,000 shares of InvenTrust Properties Corp. at a price of $1.55 per share.

 The non-traded REIT declared a new estimated net asset value of $3.29 per share of the company’s common stock, as of May 1, 2017. The original purchase price was $10.00/share.

Non-traded REITs are Risky

The trouble with non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) like, InvenTrust Properties, is that they lack liquidity and are inherently risky. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITs are more complex and are better suited for investors that can afford to risk the total losses of their investment.

 Brokers often earn extremely high sales commission selling non-traded REITs, sometimes as high as 15%. Unfortunately, the high sales commissions associated with non-traded REITs often provide some broker dealers with enough incentive to overlook suitability requirements.

Brokers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor and are in line with the clients risk tolerance, age, net worth, and investment experience.

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.
