The White Law Group is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors who invested in the following municipal arbitrage funds:
1861 Capital Management
Citigroup’s Mat and ASTA Funds
Blue River Asset Management
Havell Capital Enhanced Municipal Income Fund
Rockwater Hedge Fund, LLC
Stone and Youngberg Municipal Advantage Fund
TW Tax Advantaged Fund
The municipal bond arbitrage strategy employed by these funds were risky and exposed investors to significant losses.
The 1861 Capital Funds, for example, imploded in February 2008, causing catastrophic losses to investors.
It appears that these municipal bond arbitrage funds were marketed to clients as a fixed income product offering slightly higher returns than a municipal bond. Investors reasonably believed that these funds were conservative.
Various brokerage firms, including UBS, sold these products to many of their high net worth client and retired investors.
If you have questions about investments you made in these municipal arbitrage funds, The White Law Group may be able to help. For a free consultation, please call the firm’s Chicago office at 312-238-9650.
