UBS YES Lawsuits, Featured by Top Securities Fraud Attorneys, The White Law GroupUBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (UBS YES) Investment losses

The White Law Group is continuing its investigation of broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy to investors.

According to an article in Financial News this week, Yield Enhancement Strategy, or YES, has reportedly generated at least $60 million in losses for clients and more than two dozen customer complaints thus far.

The Yield Enhancement Strategy is an option-based trading strategy, designed “to generate returns through the strategic sale and purchase of SPX index option spreads,” according to UBS.

UBS offered the Yield Enhancement Strategy typically to high net worth investors who were required to allocate a minimum Mandate to the UBS YES program.

According to reports, UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy investors have suffered substantial losses in their portfolios. While some investors are expressing serious concerns, the losses are reportedly continuing to increase.

Unfortunately, it appears that some UBS YES investors were asked to provide additional collateral and/or are facing margin deficits.

Others reportedly were not able to get out of the Yield Enhancement Strategy programs, and could be facing catastrophic losses.

YES Investors may have claims.

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy to investors.

Armada Waste Management Investment Losses

Armada Waste Management LP, Featured by Top Attorneys, The White Law Group

GPB Capital’s Offering Armada Waste Management Declines in Value

According to reports on Friday, GPB Capital sent a document to broker-dealers on June 22, letting them know of a steep decline in value of its private placement offerings, including Armada Waste Management, LP.

GPB reportedly raised $1.8 billion from wealthy investors through sales of high-risk private placements from registered brokers and their firms while collectively earning $167 million in fees and commissions for the transactions.

On average, advisors and their firms collected 9.3% in commissions through the sale of GPB private placements.

Unfortunately for investors, these investments have dropped significantly in value.

In particular, investors bought $163.4 million of Armada Waste Management, but according to report, the current estimated value of the fund is $53.4 million.

Thus, an investment of $50,000 in Armada Waste Management has reportedly dropped in value 67.4%, and is now worth $16,330.

FINRA Lawsuits

The White Law Group continues its investigation into the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling alternative investment products like GPB’s Armada Waste Management LP to investors.

Private placements are a means for companies to raise capital through the sale of equity or debt securities without having to register their securities with the SEC. These investments are often riskier and more complicated than traditional investments, and are only suitable for high net worth, sophisticated investors.

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.

Despite the risks of investing in this type of alternative investments, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

If you are concerned about your investment in Armada Waste Management LP or another GPB Capital private placement offering and would like to speak with a securities attorney about your options, please call The White Law Group at 888-637-5510 for a free consultation.
