Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. (DKR) has filed another FINRA arbitration claim against UBS Financial Services, Inc. (“UBS”) on behalf of investors who lost nearly $1 million in the UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES) option strategy. UBS is a subsidiary of UBS Group A.G. (NYSE: UBS). The recently filed FINRA arbitration claim alleges, among other things, that UBS failed to adequately disclose the risks of its UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy and that UBS did not trade its options.
UBS YES Represented that YES was a Low-Risk Investment
UBS represented that YES would generate incremental income by buying and selling combinations of put and call options on the S&P 500 Index. UBS further represented that the strategy would be “non-directional” and would have limited risk. Notwithstanding, YES made “directional” bets on the S&P 500 Index and was far more risky than investors were led to believe. YES investors have lost up to 33% since market volatility increased in December 2018 and continuing through March 2020. Total YES investor losses are expected be more than $1 billion.
YES Loss Recovery Through FINRA Arbitration
YES investors can file FINRA arbitration claims to recover their losses. FINRA arbitration is private dispute resolution process that generally is cost and time efficient than a court proceeding.
