How Our Skilled UBS Structured Product Loss Attorneys Can Help Investors
Brokerage Firm Negligence?: UBS Financial May Have Unsuitably Recommended Complex Risky Investments
Over the years, Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (investorlawyers.com) have represented clients against UBS Financial in pursuing damages caused by broker fraud and negligence. This has included the brokerage firm allegedly unsuitably recommending investments that are too high-risk for customers or misrepresenting said risks and other key information about certain financial products and investing strategies.
Among the higher profile, recent investor loss cases we’ve handled are those involving the UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (UBS YES), which cost some investors millions of dollars, and also, Puerto Rico bonds, which UBS brokers unsuitably sold to retail investors and small businesses. With our hard work and dedication, our team of experienced securities attorneys have helped UBS customers receive the financial recovery they are owed through Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration, mediation, and litigation proceedings.
Our trusted structured products attorneys also represent clients against UBS over their investor losses involving:
- Goal Yield Notes
- Kick-in Goal
- Worst of Kick-in Goal
- BLOC Plus
- UBS Equita
- Equita Yield
- PERLES Plus
- Trigger Yield Optimization Notes
Structured products are complex securities derivatives that do not trade on an exchange. Challenging for even brokers to understand, let alone explain to investors, alleged misrepresentations and omissions, including unsuitable investment recommendations to retirees, inexperienced investors, and wealthy investors, have led to significant investor losses.
Structured products often cost more in terms of commissions and fees, which can be an added incentive for brokers to market them to clients even when they are not the right fit for an investor given the latter’s risk tolerance level, investing profiles, or financial goals. Over the years, many of the investors we have represented against UBS and other brokerage firms have often complained that they were blindsided by the risks and allege that they were never fully apprised about structured products, such as:
- The risk of complete loss of principal.
- Certain changes in the yield or price of an investment underlying a structured product could lead to higher risk while limiting profit.
- High illiquidity, would make it hard to sell or liquidate their position.
- If the issuer’s credit standing changes, this could also lead to significant investment losses.
