Alternative Investments can Include: NTRs, Variable Annuities & 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, 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.
