Risky, Illiquid Investments

Nine DST is a Delaware Statutory Trust entity offered by NB Private Capital. As noted on their website, NB Private Capital invests in student housing developments across the country. DSTs can come with high risks, but because they qualify as  Section 1031, tax-deferred exchanges are often sold as a safe, passive investment opportunity.

Unfortunately, DSTs are subject to the same pitfalls as other real estate investments, including foreclosure, loss of property value, and monthly cash flow suspension. All real estate investments are prone to instability due to market fluctuations and occupancy issues. 

A change of tax status is also a potential risk for DST investors. 1031 exchanges, because they are reinvesting in real estate, allow investors to defer capital gains taxes. A change in tax status could result in serious tax consequences and liabilities for an investor.

Nine DST Offerings

According to the Form D filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, 52 investors had already invested in the Nine DST offering at the time of filing. The total offering amount was $14,376,532, of which $8,899,577 had already been sold. Estimated sales commissions exceed $1.29 million.

Investors who were recommended and sold Nine DST securities without an adequate disclosure of risk may be entitled to compensation through an arbitration claim with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Additionally, investors who suffered losses due to a stockbroker’s, financial advisor’s, and other financial professional’s unsuitable recommendations may be eligible for financial recovery through a FINRA arbitration.
