Structured Product Losses Stun Retail Investors Who Should Never Have Been Told By Brokers To Buy Them

The recent market turbulence caused by the coronavirus has caused many investors’ portfolios to suffer huge losses, and nowhere is this more evident as the losses suffered by those who invested heavily in structured products, including exchange-traded notes (ETNs) and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). 

And while yes, no one could have anticipated COVID-19 battering the economy and the markets, for many investors, they likely shouldn’t have and wouldn’t have gotten involved in these complex investments were it not for the recommendation of their stockbroker.

Right now, our broker fraud lawyers at Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (SSEK Law Firm) are working with leveraged and inverse ETF and ETP investors throughout the US to help them explore their legal options.

UBS To Offer Redemptions to ETRACS ETN Investors After Coronavirus-Spurred Crash

UBS recently announced that it was offering mandatory redemptions for certain ETRACS ETNs while freezing trading of others after the market crashes spurred by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. UBS ETRACS ETN investors have lost a lot of money.
