Are Alternative Investments Suitable for you?
Interests in limited liability companies are often sold as unregistered securities and lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products. iCap Pacific Northwest Opportunity & Income Fund, and other limited liability companies, are generally considered high risk investments, compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
The high sales commission brokers earn for selling interests in limited liability companies may have provided some brokers with enough incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors. Some brokers may actually downplay the risks associated with alternative investments and mislead investors into thinking that they are “safe” investment products.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.
If your financial advisor makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
FINRA operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States, and has extensive experience in providing a fair, efficient and effective venue to handle a securities-related dispute.
