Rex Securities Law is in the process of filing a FINRA arbitration claim against Ameriprise Financial for losses suffered by a retiree from Florida’s west coast who has suffered significant losses as a result of investing in KBS Real Estate Investment Trust upon his retirement in 2007.
The arbitration claim alleges that Ameriprise’s broker touted KBS REIT by claiming that the investment was very similar to an investment in a bond, that the value would not fall below the $10 per share purchase price, that the investment could be liquidated if necessary and that the monthly distributions were guaranteed.
Shortly after the purchase, KBS cancelled their share redemption program and ceased the monthly distributions. After recent regulatory pressure, KBS was forced to let investors know that the shares are worth far less than the $10 purchase price. For more on the decline of KBS REIT value, see our prior post. As we have previously discussed, time will soon be running out for investors who were misled to pursue claims related to the purchase of KBS.
If you have losses in KBS and were misled as to the nature of the investment, you may be able to recover those losses. Contact us at 561 391 1900.
