The Trouble with Non-Traded REITs
Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITS, like KBS Growth & Income REIT, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk. Unfortunately many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs.
The White Law Group has represented numerous investors in claims against the brokerage firm that recommended non-traded REITs to these investors.
