It reportedly funds its investments primarily through borrowings structured as repurchase agreements.
Unfortunately for investors, shares of AGNC Investment Corp. are down -30.94% YTD.
Recovery of Investment Losses
The White Law Group is investigating FINRA arbitration claims involving broker dealers who may have improperly recommended mortgage REITs to investors.
Brokerage firms are required to perform due diligence on any investment they recommend, including mortgage REITs. They must ensure that the investment is suitable for a particular investor in light of that investor’s age, investment objectives, income, net worth, and investment experience. Given the current risk of devaluation of these REITs, such investments are likely only suitable for wealthy and/or sophisticated investors.
