SEC Valuation Rule Changes for Non-Listed REITs

FINRA filed SR-FINRA-2014-006 with the SEC to amend provisions addressing per share estimated valuations for unlisted REITs. The rule post amendment (NASD Rule 2340 - Customer Account Statements) was approved by the SEC on October 10, 2014.

Salient rule changes that will affect disclosure and practice are as follows:

  • FINRA proposes two methodologies under which reported values are to be presumed reliable and included on customer account statements: (1) Net Investment, and (2) Independent Valuation.
  • Net Investment may be used no longer than two years plus 150 days after breaking escrow.
  • Independent Valuation methodology requires that a third-party, independent valuation expert perform or provide material assistance in the valuation.
  • The Independent Valuation must be accompanied by a written opinion or report by the issuer.
  • This rule will go into place on April 10, 2016.
