Unfortunately for investors, with stricter regulation on coal imports in China and carbon emissions, investing in coal is becoming a much riskier venture.
According to Bloomberg NEF’s New Energy Outlook 2018, coal plant economics are shifting, and many major markets such as the U.S., China, Germany and India are turning to solar and wind energy plants.
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high risk energy investments like BHP Billiton LTD, to their clients.
Prior to making recommendations to an individual investor, brokerage firms are required by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to disclose all the risks of an investment.
Recommendations should only be made if the investment is suitable for an individual investor given their age, investment objections, investment experience and risk tolerance.
Brokerage firms that do not perform adequate due diligence on an investment and/or make unsuitable recommendations can be held accountable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
