Haselkorn & Thibaut continues to investigate investor losses from UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy and similar investments at other broker-dealers.
PALM BEACH, FL, USA, October 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Investors who experienced losses in the UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (“YES Strategy”) offered by UBS Financial Services, Inc. and similar programs recommended by other firms including the Merrill Lynch Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategy (“CYES”) managed by Harvest Volatility Management, LLC, continue to inquire about their legal rights and the possibility recovering their investment losses.
Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A., continues to investigate the UBS YES Strategy and Merrill Lynch CYES investment recommendations. Investors are encouraged to contact Haselkorn & Thibaut P.A. at 1-888-628-5590 or visit www.InvestmentFraudLawyers.com to schedule a free consultation and case review.
Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A. is a law firm with experience handling investment loss recovery cases nationwide. In some cases they have identified what appears to be potential questionable sales practices by both UBS and Merrill Lynch. For example, the notion that these investment strategies were conservative income strategies as they were often presented to investors appears questionable. Under certain market conditions it appears the investment strategy, notwithstanding how it was presented, actually turned out to be high risk and it has resulted in losses and damages for many unsuspecting investors.
Matthew Thibaut, a partner with Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A. has many years of experience as both a former financial advisor and as an attorney who has previously defended broker-dealer firms, and his observation is that: “… it’s clear that UBS clients in many instances were told one thing at the time they invested, and now they are being told something quite different.” Attorney Thibaut explains further that the YES Strategy was presented as a conservative investment strategy designed simply to ‘enhance yield’ on the cash and fixed-income segments (often considered the safer and less volatile segment of an investment portfolio), but that it turned out that the YES strategy could in fact be quite risky and could cause unexpected losses and damages. UBS will no doubt now try to point to some of the “fine print” where it purportedly included risk disclosure language, but Mr. Thibaut goes on to say that “UBS cannot fairly have it both ways,” and if they wanted to present it as a risky strategy they could have and should have done so. Attorney Thibaut notes that what seems to draw the ire of most of the investors he has spoken to is the fact that they were directly told (and only interested in the YES strategy because) it was supposed to be safe and conservative.
The attorneys at Haselkorn & Thibaut, P.A. have over 50 years of combined experience handling these types of claims, along with the benefit of experience of having worked in the securities industry as financial advisors, and as defense lawyers, representing broker-dealer and investment advisory firms. Most of these claims are handled as confidential customer claims through the Financial Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Office of Dispute Resolution, where they are private arbitration filings that involve only paper discovery and no depositions or court appearances.
