In addition to the risks, another problem with limited partnerships is the high sales commissions offered to brokers. These commissions may provide brokers with enough incentive to push this product to unsuspecting investors.
Brokerage firms 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.
