Horizontal Exploration – Private Placement – Securities Investigation

Horizontal Exploration

Investigating Potential Claims – Horizontal Exploration

Are you concerned about investment in Horizontal Exploration? If so, the attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

Horizontal Exploration engages in the exploration and production of oil and gas. It operates various vertical oil and gas wells in Appalachian Basin. The company was founded in 2011 and is based in Indiana, Pennsylvania, according to Bloomberg.

The trouble with alternative investment products, like Horizontal Exploration, is that they involve a high degree of risk and are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks and bonds.  An additional risk inherent to Horizontal Exploration offerings is also the general risk that comes with the energy market – a market that has seen enormous losses over the last few years.

Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations to ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.

However, another unfortunate by product of Reg D private placements is that the high sales commission brokers earn for selling such products may provide some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks of these types of products.

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