Four Springs Capital Trust Withdraws Registration Statement

Four Springs Capital Trust

Four Springs Capital Trust Withdraws Registration Statement due to Market Conditions 

The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities claims involving Four Springs Capital Trust. Four Springs Capital Trust, an internally managed REIT, is reportedly focused on single-tenant, income producing industrial, medical, service/necessity retail and office properties throughout the United States that are subject to long-term net leases. 

According to reports this week by the DI wire, the REIT filed a request with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to withdraw its registration statement on a previously filed Form S-11. Four Springs has reportedly decided not to pursue the sale of the securities at this time “due to market conditions.” 

This comes after the REIT made an Initial Public Offering (IPO) in January 2022 which it postponed, also “due to market conditions.” 

This is not the first time the company has attempted and failed to launch an IPO. We reported in 2017, Four Springs Capital Trust canceled a $115.9 million initial public offering due to “unfavorable market conditions,” according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 

The Risks of Alternative Investments 

The trouble with alternative investment products, like Four Springs Capital Trust, is that they involve a high degree of risk and are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds. 

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for improperly selling alternative investments like Four Springs Capital Trust. 

Broker dealers that sell alternative investments are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations. They must ensure that each investment recommendation that is made is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience. 

However, another problem with this type of investment is the high sales commissions and due diligence fees the brokers earn.  Brokers have an enormous incentive to push the product to unsuspecting investors who do not fully understand the risks of these types of investments. They can easily misrepresent the basic features of the products – usually focusing on the income potential and tax benefits while downplaying the risks. 

Fortunately, FINRA  provides an arbitration forum for investors to resolve such disputes. If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment, they may be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
