A private placement, also known as an unregistered offering, is a sale of stock shares or bonds to pre-selected investors or institutions, not the open market. It can be used as an alternative way to raise capital for expansion.
Investors who are invited to participate in private placement programs often include banks and other financial institutions, mutual funds, insurance companies, and high-net-worth individual investors.
Investing in private placements can be risky. Private placements are not registered with the SEC and can tie up your investment funds for over a year. Furthermore, they lack some of the safeguards that registered offerings provide, such as comprehensive disclosure requirements.
If you’ve been involved in private placement fraud or your broker recommended an unsuitable private placement investment, you may have a case for recovery. Contact an experienced investor rights lawyer who can advise you on next steps.
