Hines Real Estate Trust Investment Losses

Have you suffered investment losses in Hines Real Estate Trust? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.

The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities fraud claims involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase risky REIT investments, such as Hines Real Estate Trust.

According recent SEC filings, in December 2014 Hines estimated the per share NAV of the REIT at $6.50. Unfortunately for investors they may have trouble finding someone willing to purchase their shares for that amount. Sales of Hines are currently listed on the secondary market for $5.02, according to Central Trade & Transfer.

Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives. Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
