Investors owning non publicly traded alternative investments, such as real estate investment trusts (REITs) and oil and gas partnerships may not have been aware of the meaning of illiquid when the investments were recommended to them by a financial advisor or stockbroker.
These investments generated high commissions for the firm and broker and were typically sold to unsuspecting with the promise of a steady dependable stream of income, a promise of steady or increasing value and with little discussion of the fact that the investment cannot be sold on any conventional exchange should a need for cash arise.
Many investors made the decision to purchase these investments without a clear understanding of the risks associated with them. Many purchased them not aware that they are illiquid.
If you have watched the value of your investments in alternative investments decline and wonder how you can get out of these investments that cannot be sold on any conventional exchange, you may be pleased to know that there are several secondary markets that have developed over the years which provide investors the opportunity to dispose of these investments.
Here are two popular market makers. Each has its own set of procedures for buying and selling alternative investments. Visit their sites for details.
