Poet’s Walk Funding I LLC – Investigating Potential FINRA Claims
Are you concerned about your investment in Poet’s Walk Funding I LLC? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment. According to SEC filings, Poet’s Walk Funding I LLC filed a Form D to raise capital from investors in 2018. The total amount of the offering was purportedly $10,000,000.
The Trouble with Reg D Private Placements
Private placements under Regulation D (Reg D) such as Poet’s Walk Funding I LLC, are investment offerings that are typically sold to a limited number of accredited investors, such as high-net-worth individuals, institutions, or sophisticated investors. These offerings are exempt from the usual registration requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) under Regulation D, which allows issuers to raise capital without undergoing the full scrutiny of a public offering.
Regulation D (Reg D) private placements typically involve a high degree of risk. Since private placements are illiquid, selling your investment to access funds could prove challenging. If you are able to find a buyer on a secondary market, you may end up selling your investment at a loss. Further, investments such as Poet’s Walk Funding 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%. These high fees and commission can make it difficult to see a healthy return on your investment.
Due Diligence and Suitability
FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) is a self-regulatory organization that oversees the securities industry in the United States. The suitability rule is a regulation imposed by the FINRA that requires brokers and financial advisors to recommend investments that are suitable for their clients based on their financial situation, investment objectives, risk tolerance, and other relevant factors.
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. Firms that fail to do so, may be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
If your broker has made unsuitable investment recommendations, and you have suffered losses, you may be able to file a claim with FINRA to seek resolution through arbitration.
Having a securities attorney to assist you with FINRA arbitration is highly recommended, even though it’s not mandatory. The intricacies of 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.
