Cypress sold units of Cypress Leasing Fund A, an equipment leasing funds to raise capital from investors in 2012.
The purchase of these ‘units” are considerably more risky than traditional investments such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Unfortunately brokers may not have adequately explained the risks and liquidity problems to investors.
According to the Form D, brokers earned 6% in sales commission on Cypress Leasing Fund A. This may provide some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors. Additionally, some brokers may have downplayed the risks associated with the purchase of LLC units and misled investors into thinking that they were “safe” investments.
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.
Broker dealers that fail to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations can be held liable for investment losses.
