Macerich – Securities Investigation
The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended Macerich to investors.
REITs often pay a high dividend but certain advisors may have unsuitably recommended Macerich in an effort to “chase yield.”
Broker-dealers have a legal obligation to act in the best interest of their clients and have to demonstrate adequate due diligence on an investment before recommending the investment to a client. Furthermore, recommendations should be consistent with an individual’s age, risk tolerance, financial objectives, and investment knowledge.
