Investors in AEI Accredited Investor Fund V, L.P. (“AEI V” or the “Limited Partnership) may be able to recover losses on their investment through initiating an arbitration proceeding with FINRA Dispute Resolution, if the recommendation to invest in FSEP was unsuitable, or if the broker or financial advisor who recommended the investment made a misleading sales presentation. AEI V is structured as a Minnesota limited partnership and is based in St. Paul, MN. The Limited Partnership was formed as a capital investment entity for the purpose of investing in a portfolio of income producing commercial real estate.
On May 29, 2013, AEI V first offered securities through its private placement pursuant to Regulation D (“Reg D”) of the federal securities laws. The total initial offering amount was $1,915,573, and investors who participated in the offering were required to invest a minimum of $5,000.
In general, limited partnerships — particularly non-traded limited partnerships, such as AEI V — are very complex and risky investments. For this reason, investing in a limited partnership through a private placement is typically only available to accredited investors (to be accredited an investor must have an annual income of $200,000 or joint annual income of $300,000, for the last two years, or alternatively, have a net worth in excess of $1 million).
