UDF Income Fund V Investment Losses, featured by top securities fraud attorneys, The White Law Group

United Development Funding Income Fund V – UDF Income Fund V

Have you suffered losses investing in UDF Income Fund V at the recommendation of your financial advisor? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you to recover your losses by filing a FINRA arbitration claim.

United Development Funding Income Fund V (“UDF V” or “UDF Income Fund V”) is a real estate investment trust (REIT) formed to generate current interest income by investing in secured loans and producing profits from investments in residential real estate, according to its website. UDF Income Fund V is a non-traded REIT sponsored by United Development Funding in a Grapevine, Texas.

As of December 2015, United Development Funding Income Fund V had raised over $40 million in capital from individual, retail investors.

As we told you in February 2016, the FBI raided United Development Funding’s offices in Grapevine, Texas investigating allegations of a possible Ponzi scheme involving another offering, UDF IV.

Limited partnerships often lack liquidity because they are not sold on any public exchange, such as the NYSE or NASDAQ. These types of investments are intended for sophisticated and institutional investors.  The level of risk is generally too high for conservative and moderate risk investors.

According to a secondary market for private placements, CTT Auctions, shares of United Development Funding III (UDF III) were recently sold for just $3.00 per share. This appears to be a significant loss for investors, as the shares were originally offered at $20.00 per share.

Recovery of Investment Losses in UDF Income Fund V

The White Law Group has received numerous calls from investors who have suffered losses investing in UDF funds. The firm continues to investigate potential claims in all of the UDF offerings such as UDF Income Fund V.

Unfortunately for some investors limited partnerships and real estate investment trusts (REIT) sponsored by UDF were not as “safe” as their broker led them to believe.

In general, limited partnerships and REITs lack liquidity and are inherently risky. These types of products are sophisticated complex investments that are better suited for institutional investors or investors who can afford total loss of their capital investment.

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.

If you have suffered investment losses incurred as a result of your UDF  Income Fund V investment or another UDF offering, please contact The White Law Group at 888-637-5510 for a free consultation.
