The White Law Group is investigating securities fraud claims involving the ultra-short bond funds Schwab YieldPlus (SWYPX) and Schwab YieldPlus Select (SWYSX). Based on our investigation, it appears that these funds were marketed as conservative and an alternative to money-market funds to retirees and other investors.
Unfortunately, these investments were not the well-diversified, safe funds that Schwab was alleged to have represented to its customers. Rather, the funds were heavily invested in risky subprime mortgage-backed securities and risky collateral debt obligations.
The Schwab YieldPlus Fund has lost more than 40% of its value, making it one of the worst-performing ultra-short bond funds.
If you have suffered investment losses in Schwab YieldPlus, The White Law Group may be able to help.
