The Problem with Private Placement Investments
The problem with private placement investments such as Parker Springs Partners, LLC is that they involve a high degree of risk. They are typically sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.
Private placement 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 such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange 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%.
Recovery of Investment Losses – Parker Springs Partners
Despite the risks of investing in private placement 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.
