  The Securities Arbitration Law Firm of Klayman & Toskes Files Claim Against
  Berthel Fisher As It Continues To Investigate Claims On Behalf of Inland
  Western REIT n/k/a Retail Properties of America Investors

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- March 5, 2013

The Securities Arbitration Law Firm of Klayman & Toskes (“K&T”),
www.reitfraudloss.com, announced today that it filed a claim against Berthel
Fisher & Co. Financial Services (“Berthel”) to recover damages sustained in
Inland Western REIT n/k/a Retail Properties of America (NYSE: RPAI). The
securities arbitration claim was filed with the Financial Industry Regulatory
Authority (“FINRA”).

According to the claim, in maintaining accounts with Berthel, the Claimant had
always made it clear that he did not want to expose his assets to significant
risk, and that he was willing to accept a lower rate of return in order to
keep his hard-earned money safe. In response, Berthel recommended Inland
Western REIT. The firm’s advisor represented to Claimant that the REIT would
be a “sure thing” with a guaranteed dividend of 5% for the first 5 years. The
investment was marketed as a low risk, fixed income product that would
preserve Claimant’s principal investment. The reality, however, was that the
REIT was speculative and exposed Claimant’s portfolio to more risk than he was
willing to assume. As a result, Claimant sustained substantial damages.

Investors who purchased Inland Western REIT or other direct investments from
Berthel Fisher or other brokerage firms can contact K&T to explore their legal
rights and options. K&T is presently pursuing claims on behalf of investors
from across the country who sustained losses by purchasing these types of
products.
