High Risk Alternative Investments
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving FINRA registered brokerage firms who may have unsuitably recommended alternative investments such as Strategic Energy Assets IV to investors.
These alternative investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors. They often have high fees and sales commissions, making them an attractive product for financial advisors to sell. In the case of Strategic Energy Assets IV, “up to 10% of offering proceeds may be given as commission to the broker-dealers selling the offering,” according to the Form D.
An additional risk inherent to this type of offering is the general risk that comes with the energy market – a market that has seen enormous losses over the last few years.
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.
Despite the risks of investing in this type of alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.
