The Trouble with Private Placements
The trouble with private placements, such as ICON Leasing Fund Fourteen, is that they lack liquidity and are inherently risky. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, private placements are more complex and are better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors. In addition, private placements are exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), therefore they lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investments.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
Furthermore, broker dealer often earn extremely high sales commission selling private placements, sometimes as high as 15%. Unfortunately, the high sales commissions associated with private placements often provides some broker dealers with enough incentive to overlook suitability requirements.
Investors looking to sell a private placement investment often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
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 a FINRA arbitration.
