Investigating Potential Claims – Peach Tree #1 LP
Are you concerned about your investment in Peach Tree #1 LP? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
The company filed a Form D (private placement) notice of exempt offering of securities in 2016 to raise capital from investors. This is an oil & gas investment according to the Form D.
Many oil and gas LPs have high expense ratios, and due to the decline in the overall health of the oil and gas market, are suffering. Some are on the brink of default, or worse yet, bankruptcy. Such an outcome is extreme, but not unforeseen. It only highlights the unsuitability of these investments for most retail investors – particularly in large concentrations.
The Risks of Investing in Alternative Investments
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling alternative investment products like Peach Tree #1 LP to investors.
Private placements are a means for smaller companies to raise capital through the sale of equity or debt securities without having to register their securities with the SEC. These investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
Despite the risks of investing in this type of alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.
