Nelson Partners Skyloft is a Real Estate Investment With No Ready Market
As a private placement investment in commercial real estate, Nelson Partners Skyloft (NP Skyloft DST) is not easily traded on the open market. Investments in private placements or “Reg D” (non-public) securities offerings are risky because they are not subject to the same disclosure requirements by the Securities Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as public investment offerings.
Nonetheless, brokers and advisors licensed by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) who sold Nelson Partners Skyloft (NP Skyloft DST) could be held liable for any losses sustained by their clients.
If you are a 1031 exchange investor looking for a replacement property, you may want to consider a Delaware Statutory Trust (“DST”). Suppose you’re looking to diversify your portfolio and earn monthly returns in commercial real estate without taking on the responsibilities of a landlord. In that case, this may be a good option for you. However, due to their low liquidity, DSTs are best suited for investors who can wait for their money to grow over time.
Despite a $35 Million Loan Guarantee, Nelson Partners’ Skyloft Defaults
Nelson Partners reportedly raised over $75 million from investors to build a high-end student community near the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. This is according to the company’s Form D SEC filing. Nelson Partners is accused of falsely claiming the high demand for student housing and the number of students who have already signed leases for available dorm rooms in their advertising materials. Many older people in search of stable returns made up the investor pool.
To help pay back a loan, it took out from Preferred Equity provider
Axonic Capital, in the amount of $35 million, Nelson Partners turned to its investors for a capital infusion. NP Skyloft stopped making its $35 million loan payments to investors when the real estate market dropped during the Covid-19 pandemic. After that, Axonic Capital bought out the student housing and put it up for sale. And some investors have claimed that Axonic Capital’s ability to acquire the property was not disclosed in the memorandum from Nelson Partner.
For What Reasons Might My Broker Accept Liability For My Losses?
Before recommending a financial product to clients, brokerages and their advisors must conduct thorough research on the product. Because of their failure to investigate the preferred equity loan disclosed in the offering documents, Haselkorn & Thibaut holds the brokerage firms that sold NP Skyloft liable for negligence. Brokerages that make such mistakes can be held responsible in FINRA arbitration claims.
How do I get my money back that I lost?
