Unsuitable Private Placement Investments

The growing popularity of private placement investments is highly speculative and risky, relative to other types of investments. As the name suggests, private placement investments, also referred to as private placement offerings, private equity investments, and private investments are not available to the public at large. While this type of investment can present lucrative returns, it also carries a very high level of risk, which only sophisticated investors with at least a moderate risk profile should be invited to consider by a broker.

Furthermore, these off-market investments are poorly regulated and open investors to high levels of risk. If the business goes bankrupt, there is no place to sell the investment. This can cause a complete loss of the investment.

Private placements also present challenges in terms of recovering losses. The brokerage often is unaware that one of its brokers is representing this investment. The best strategy for recovering losses in many cases includes pursuing compensation from the brokerage for failing to adequately supervise the broker. Your lawyer must be able to effectively and tenaciously pursue your interests.
