Recovery of Investment Losses
The problem with non-traded REITs 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 less regulated, making them better suited for sophisticated investors that can afford to risk the total losses of their investment.
Investors looking to sell REITs often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Brokers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor and are in line with the client’s 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.
You may be able to recover investment losses through FINRA Arbitration. 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.
