Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund: Investor Alert

Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund: Investor Alert featured by top securities fraud attorneys, the White Law Group

Securities Investigation: Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund 

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities claims involving broker dealers who may have improperly recommended Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund (now known as Apollo Diversified Credit Fund) to investors.

Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund is a closed-end management investment company operated as an interval fund.  The company changed its name in 2022 to Apollo Diversified Credit Fund. According to its website, the fund focused on a “multi-asset” approach including (1) corporate direct lending, (2) asset-backed lending, (3) performing credit, (4) dislocated credit, and (5) structured credit.

Alternative investments such as the Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund involve high risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.

Alternative investments are typically sold to a limited number of accredited investors, such as high-net-worth individuals, institutions, or sophisticated investors. Lack of liquidity can also be a problem for investors since the shares are not sold on any exchange. Often, when you are ready to sell you won’t be able to find a buyer, or if there is a buyer available, you may sell at a significant loss.

Investments like these are typically sold by brokerage firms for a large up-front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.

Alternative Investments – Griffin Institutional Access Credit Fund

Despite the risks of investing in alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations 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.

Experienced securities attorneys can help you through the FINRA arbitration process. FINRA arbitration can be challenging to navigate, and a skilled attorney with expertise in securities law can significantly enhance your prospects of a successful outcome.
