Investigating Potential Claims involving NB Crest Investor Units LLC
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker dealers and financial advisors who may have unsuitably recommended NB Crest Investor Units LLC to investors.
NB Crest Investor Units LLC, based in Aliso Viejo, CA, reportedly filed a form D to raise capital from investors in 2019, according to filings with the SEC. The total offering amount sold to investors was purportedly $4,607,094. The type of securities is Tenants-in-Common (TIC), according to the filing.
A TIC investment is defined as a property that is sold to multiple investors who then own fractional interests in the property as co-owners. These investments are often marketed to conservative and retired investors.
Generally offered as a 1031 exchange tax deferral, financial professionals often misrepresent the risks and benefits of TIC investments. TIC investments often pay high fees and sales commissions, sometimes more than 10%, which may explain why a financial advisor may recommend them to their clients. In this particular offering the sales commissions and fees are estimated at 10% of the total offering amount, according to the Reg D filing.
Brokerage firms have a responsibility to adequately disclose all risks before selling any investment and must consider suitability factors such as age, financial needs, and risk tolerance to name a few. Firms that do not perform adequate due diligences on an investment or demonstrate a breach of fiduciary duty can be held accountable for losses incurred through FINRA arbitration.
