Virtua Austin Residential Holdings: Investigating Claims

Are you concerned about your investment in Virtua Austin Residential Holdings LLC? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help. Virtua Partners is a private equity firm specializing in commercial real estate. Virtua purportedly sponsors a variety of funds and commercial real estate projects across the country, such as Virtua Austin Residential Holdings LLC.

Virtua reportedly filed a reg D to raise capital from investors in 2020 for the commercial real estate fund offering Virtua Austin Residential Holdings LLC. The total offering amount was purportedly $17,365,000.

Complex Investment Products

Private placement investments are complex investment products. They are a means for smaller companies to raise capital through the sale of equity or debt securities without having to register their securities with the SEC. These investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors.

In addition to the risks involved with private placements, there are risks of investing in commercial real estate. Higher interest rates, higher property taxes and insurance and construction costs, along with a surge in new supply and more modest rent growth, are making it difficult for investors to see healthy returns.

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling alternative investment products, like Virtua Austin Residential Holdings LLC, to their clients.

Despite the risks of investing in this type of alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

Is a Private Placement Investment Suitable for you?

Your broker is required to assess your investment objectives, risk tolerance, financial situation, and investment experience before making investment recommendations. This involves understanding your goals, time horizon, liquidity needs, and tolerance for potential losses.

Your broker should also ensure that you are aware of the risks associated with private placements, including limited liquidity, lack of regulatory oversight, and the potential for loss of principal.

Broker Due Diligence

Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor considering that investor’s age, investment experience, net worth, risk tolerance, investment objectives, and income.

Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence or that make unsuitable recommendations can be held responsible for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
