Frank Chan Involved in a BDC and Non-Traded REIT Dispute

Frank Chan (CRD #: 2549010), a broker registered with Osaic Welath, is the subject of an investor dispute. This disclosure appears on his BrokerCheck record, accessed on February 16, 2024. Details concerning this dispute are provided below. 

On December 18, 2023, an investor named Frank Chan in a dispute alleging that his portfolio was concentrated in illiquid, speculative, low-quality, high-commission non-traded REITs and Business Development Companies (BDCs). 

The investor is seeking over $1.5 million. 


Business Development Companies (BDCs) extend loans to small and medium-sized companies, typically those that are distressed. While the high interest rates charged by BDCs can mean high returns for investors, the possibility of the company defaulting on the loan and other risks can make BDCs unsuitable for some investors.

What Are Non-Traded REITs?

Real estate investment trusts (REITs) allow investors to generate returns from a portfolio of real estate without being directly involved in property management. However, REITs tend to be illiquid, which makes them unsuitable for many investors. Non-traded REITs are especially risky because they are not traded on the public exchange, making them difficult or impossible to sell.
