Ted Lorenzen | Cedar Brook Group and Securities America

 

Lorenzen allegedly advised his clients to invest in ARC NYC REIT. Pitched as a way to provide investors with income and appreciation, ARC NYC REIT is promoted as “high-quality commercial real estate located within the five boroughs of New York City, particularly Manhattan.” Initially, NYC REIT was a non-traded REIT. Because it was not initially traded on an exchange, ARC NYC REIT was even less liquid than other REITs that trade on open exchanges. Investors believed that returns would be greater than 10% annually, but distributions stopped and there was a reverse stock split. To make matter worse, the initial public offering price was $25 per share, but that valuation has now plummeted below $12 per share.
