Did You Suffer Investment Losses After Being Recommended the CYES Strategy? Learn More About Your Legal Rights
The Sonn Law Group is investigating claims related to the Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategy or CYES Strategy. If you suffered investment losses after your financial advisor or brokerage firm recommended this complex options trading strategy, we want to discuss your case. Contact us today for a free, confidential consultation.
The Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategy (CYES Strategy) was marketed at high net worth investors who were seeking a safe and secure way to obtain additional income.
A number of different prominent broker-dealers recommended this investment strategy to customers, including:
- Credit Suisse Securities (CRD#: 816);
- UBS Financial Services (CRD#: 8174); and
- Morgan Stanley (CRD#: 149777).
Unfortunately, the CYES strategy does not perform well in all market conditions. In times of high volatility — as we experienced in late 2018 and early 2019 — overlay options strategies may expose investors to major downside risks.
Brokerage Firms May Be Liable for Unsuitable Investment Recommendations
Some investors who suffered losses with the Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategy contend that their financial advisor or brokerage firm did not adequately explain the risks associated with this highly complex investment. The CYES Strategy is only appropriate for sophisticated investors who have a degree of risk tolerance.
If a financial advisor or brokerage firm made an unsuitable investment recommendation or made material omissions in promoting a complex, risky options trading strategy, they may potentially be liable for an investor’s losses.
