Concerned about investment losses in Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II (CV REIT II)?
Have you suffered investment losses in Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II (CV REIT II)? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
As we told you in a recent post, CV REIT II recently merged with an affiliated non-traded REIT, Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT. The company noted that while the value of its pre- and post-merger real estate portfolio increased, the NAV was negatively impacted by transaction costs incurred from Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT’s debt payoff and other merger-related costs ($0.37), distributions in excess of earnings ($0.08), and a change in the value of interest rate swaps ($0.08), according to filings with the SEC.
As of October 31, 2019, the company reportedly approved an estimated net asset value of $8.65 per share for the REIT’s Class A, Class I, Class T, and Class T2 shares of common stock. The shares originally sold for $10.00 per share, and the previous Net Asset Value was $9.25 per share.
Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II is a non-traded, publicly registered REIT that “intends to employ a long-term, net lease strategy in order to help mitigate risk, provide greater certainty of rental income and maximize value for fund shareholders,” according to its website.
The Trouble with Non-traded REITs
The trouble with non-traded REITs like Carter Validus Mission Critical REIT II, is that they involve a high degree of risk and are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
The White Law Group continues to investigate the liability that brokerage firms may have for improperly selling non-traded REITs.
Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment recommendation that is made is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
Alternative investments are also known for high sales commissions and due diligence fees. Brokers have an enormous incentive to push these products to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks. Sometimes brokers misrepresent the basic features of the products – usually focusing on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks.
Fortunately, FINRA does provide for an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes. If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
