Healthcare Trust Inc. – Securities Investigation
The White Law Group continues to investigate potential claims against brokerage firms that recommended non-traded REITs such as Healthcare Trust Inc. to its investors.
Healthcare Trust, Inc. is a non-traded real estate investment trust sponsored by AR Global. The REIT seeks to acquire a diversified portfolio of real estate properties, focusing primarily on healthcare-related assets including medical office buildings, seniors housing and other healthcare-related facilities, according to Bloomberg.
Unfortunately for investors, Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market for private placements, is currently listing shares of Healthcare Trust Inc. for $14.25 per share. That’s significantly less than the initial offering price in 2013 of $25.00 per share.
Are Non-Traded REITs Suitable for you?
Sadly, many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs. Non-traded REITS, compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk.
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.
If your brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations, or fails to adequately disclose risks, they can be held liable for investment losses.
