What is the Lodging Fund REIT III?
Lodging Fund REIT III was established on April 9, 2018, to focus on acquiring a diversified portfolio of limited services, selected services, and extended-stay hotels in America’s “heartland,” which they define as the geographic area of North Dakota, Texas, the Appalachians and the Rocky Mountains. According to DI Wire, the REIT raised $75.3 million in investor capital in the fourth quarter of 2020 to own a portfolio of seven hotel properties purchased for about $100 million.
Lodging Fund REIT Lawsuits
Broker-dealers are required by the Financial Conduct Authority (FINRA) to disclose the risks of investments when making recommendations to individual investors. Recommendations are made when an investment is suitable for an individual investor, in view of the age of the investor, the investment objections, the investment experience, and the risk tolerance. Brokers and firms that do not perform adequate due diligence on investments and make inappropriate recommendations may be held liable by FINRA through arbitration for investment losses.
High commissions can be a motivating factor for unscrupulous financial advisers to sell untraded REIT investments that do not match the client’s investment objectives and profile. Total commission expenses can make it more difficult for REITs to comply with market requirements.
