The Trouble with Reg D Private Placement Investments
The trouble with Reg D private placement investments, such as Cornerstone Apartment Venture III, 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 and bonds.
Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations to ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
However, another unfortunate by product of Reg D private placements is that the high sales commission brokers earn for selling such products may provide some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks of these types of products.
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 liable for investment losses.
