Alternative investments are investments other than those in publicly traded companies’ stocks, bonds, or in mutual funds. They generally are illiquid, suitable only for a small number of investors, and lack transparency as to their issuers’ relevant financial information. Investment professionals sometime recommend alternative investments to investors as a means to diversify and/or achieve higher returns. However, they sometimes fail to disclose to their customers the risks associated with such products, or even to make sure the alternative investments they offer are legitimate.
We represent investors who suffer losses as a result of alternative investments such as:
Real estate investment opportunities
Oil and gas
Asset protection programs
Investment professionals and securities broker-dealer firms are required to investigate in advance the investment products they offer to their customers. Any red flags must be checked. The due diligence process they are required to conduct as to alternative investments must be thorough. We go after financial industry members when they fail in their duty to protect the investing public.
We have represented thousands of victims of investment fraud, against financial institutions that failed to discharge their duties and protect the investing public. Each case is different and our past successes are not indicative of future results; we will be glad to review your case and advise you as to your options, at no charge.
