Recovery of PowerShares S&P SmallCap Energy ETF Losses

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)

Have you suffered losses investing in PowerShares S&P SmallCap Energy ETF?  If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses in a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the investment.

PowerShares S&P SmallCap Energy ETF is an exchange-traded fund.  The investment seeks investment results that generally correspond (before fees and expenses) to the price and yield of the S&P SmallCap 600® Capped Energy Index. The fund generally will invest at least 90% of its total assets in common stocks of small capitalization U.S. energy companies that comprise the underlying index. These companies are principally engaged in the business of producing, distributing or servicing energy related products, including oil and gas exploration and production, refining, oil services and pipelines. It is non-diversified.  PowerShares S&P SmallCap Energy ETF is down 35.79% year-to-date.

Commodity ETFs can be extremely complex and risky.  They are only suitable for wealthy, sophisticated retail investors or institutional investors.

Brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
