There are a multitude of reasons why Delaware Statutory Trusts, or DSTs, are a high-risk investment. Although DSTs may be suitable for some investors, they are not the best alternative for everyone due to their drawbacks. One example is that 1031 DSTs cannot raise additional capital after the initial investment, which means that investors may be responsible for unexpected expenses, such as repairs, or a decrease in occupancy or rental income. The investors also have limited authority over the property. While the sponsor may welcome feedback from the investors in the DST, they don’t allow any actions to be taken by any one investor. The issue of illiquidity is also a primary concern when it comes to investing in a DST. This makes it difficult to find a buyer if an investor wants to sell their interest prior to sale of the property.

A financial advisor should analyze the suitability of investments before recommending them to their clients. There are several factors that should be taken into account to ensure an investment would be suitable for their clients. Some of those details include, liquidity needs, time horizon, risk tolerance, age, and income. Once that is completed the brokerage firm must ensure that due diligence was completed at every level of each investment. Consider all aspects of the investment and diligently review your options prior to investing in a DST.
FINRA Claims to Recover Losses
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly recommending high-risk investments to investors. Brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment despite the risks of investing in DSTs, because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation. It is important to note that FINRA does provide an arbitration forum for investors to resolve disputes if a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment. It is possible that they could be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
