Rodin Global Property Trust Changes Name to Cantor Fitzgerald Income Trust Inc.
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving FINRA registered broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended high risk non-traded REITs such as Cantor Fitzgerald Income Trust Inc.(formerly known as Rodin Global Property Trust) to investors.
Rodin Global Property Trust, a publicly registered non-traded REIT, reportedly invests primarily in single-tenant net leased commercial properties. According to filings with the SEC, the company has changed its name to Cantor Fitzgerald Income Trust Inc.
The company has also announced a change in seven share classes and a decrease in distributions for holders of Class D, Class S, Class T, and Class TX shares.
In May we told you that the REIT reported a lower estimated net asset value (NAV) per share for the company’s common stock, as of March 31, 2020.
As of March 31, 2020, Class A and Class I shares have a NAV per share of $23.74, and Class T shares have a NAV of $23.72 per share. The originally offering price was $25.00 per share. Last quarter’s valuation was $25.11 for Class A and Class I shares, and $25.09 for Class T shares, as of December 31, 2019.
Investigating Potential Lawsuits
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase high-risk non-traded REITs. Many investors are not fully aware of the problems and risks associated with these investments before purchasing them.
Non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) are complex and inherently risky products. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, REITs are significantly more complex and often better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors.
Another problem often associated with alternative investment recommendations is the high sales commissions brokers typically earn – as high as 15%. For this particular investment the sales commissions and fees were estimated at more than 9%.
Brokers have an obligation to make investment recommendations that are consistent with their clients risk tolerance, net worth, investment objectives and experience in the market. Unfortunately, in many cases, the high sales commission may provide some brokers with enough incentive to make unsuitable investment recommendations.
In addition to the high risks, non-traded REITs, like Cantor Fitzgerald Income Trust Inc. often lack liquidity. Investors looking to sell these investments often have difficulty finding a buyer, and if they are able to find one can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Firms that fail to do so, may be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
