Alternative Investment

Alternative Investments can Include: Non-Traded REITs, Variable Annuities, Structured Products, Business Development Companies, and More

Investment recommendations must be consistent with a client’s investment objectives and risk tolerance. Some brokers and advisory firms have recently been sanctioned by regulators for excessive sales of illiquid Alternative Investments, where there is a very limited secondary market. Alternative Investments can include Non-Traded REITs [NTRs], Variable Annuities, Business Development Companies [BDCs], Oil and Gas Partnerships and other Direct Participation Programs. State and Federal regulators have recently sanctioned many broker-dealers and advisory firms for excessive sales of these ‘Alternative Investments’. Regulators found that these firms failed to reasonably supervise the sales of NTRs, Variable Annuities, Leveraged ETFs, and other products sold to their customers.

Client Reviews
Howard Rosenfield is truly a life saver. After months of working with my financial advisor, I found out he was making risky investments without my knowledge. When I discovered how much money I lost, I thought there was nothing I could do. Howard explained all the difficult terms and what exactly my financial advisor did wrong. If it wasn't for Howard, I would never have recovered my losses and would be under extreme financial distress to this day. J.
Howard’s experience and advice throughout this ordeal was invaluable and reassuring. The law in general is complicated, difficult to understand and very personal. Financial misappropriation is even more personal but Howard’s years of experience and calm demeanor helped keep me calm, focused and moving forward. For anyone in need of a knowledgeable and experienced Investment Recovery Attorney I strongly recommend Howard. Laura
