FINRA Rule 2020
FINRA Rule 2020 forbids the use of manipulation, deception, and other fraudulent tactics to influence investors’ decisions. This includes the misrepresentation or omission of information, such as an investment’s risks, requirements, or potential returns.
What are REITs?
Real estate investment trusts (REITs) allow investors to generate returns from a portfolio of real estate without needing to maintain the properties themselves. However, REITs tend to be illiquid, which makes them unsuitable for some investors.
What are BDCs?
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.
