Shire Investments LLC – Securities Investigation
Are you concerned about your investment in Shire Investments LLC? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
According to SEC filings, Shire Investments LLC filed a Form D to raise capital from investors in 2013 in New York, NY. The total offering amount was $20,000,000.
Shire Investments LLC is a Regulation D private placement investment. 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%. In this case, sales commissions of 8% were paid on the investment, according to the Form D.
The problem with private placement investments such as Shire Investments LLC is that they typically involve a high degree of risk. They are also often sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
