The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving FINRA registered brokerage firms who may have unsuitably recommended high risk investments such as Yuma Energy Inc. to investors.
These investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are generally only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors. They often have high fees and sales commissions, making them an attractive product for financial advisors to sell.
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.
