Investment Losses with Hines REIT
Have you suffered investment losses in Hines Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) or do you have liquidity concerns about your Hines REIT investment? The White Law Group may be able to help recover your investment through Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration.
The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims on behalf of investors involving broker-dealers recommendation that investors purchase risky REIT investments, including Hines REIT.
Based on our investigation to date, it appears that Hines REIT has terminated its shareholder redemption program (making the investment essentially illiquid). It also appears that many of the real estate investments made by Hines REIT were made at the height of the real estate bubble, making it plausible that the underlying assets of the REIT have declined precipitously.
FINRA recently announced that it is paying close attention to the sale of REITs and, in particular, the ways in which broker/dealers marketed and sold the products to investors. In many cases, and notwithstanding the risk of REIT investments, broker-dealers marketed these investments as safe and secure.
REITs typically pay a high commission – up to as much as 15% (which may in some cases explain the stockbroker’s motivation in recommending the REIT investment to the investor).
The White Law Group’s investigation into the improper sales of REITs to investors includes, but is not limited to, recommendations to invest in the following REITs: Behringer Harvard REIT I, Inland America Real Estate Trust, Inland Western Retail Real Estate Trust, Wells Real Estate Investment Trust II, Piedmont Office Realty Trust, Desert Capital REIT, Apple REIT, Crystal River REIT, and Hines REIT.
