Recovery of Pacific Investment Management Co. Losses

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2015)

Have you suffered investment losses in Pacific Investment Management Co.? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.

The White Law Group is investigating broker-dealers’ potential improper recommendation that investors purchase Pacific Investment Management Co. Managed Futures Strategy Fund.

A managed futures fund, like Pacific Investment Management Co. Managed Futures Strategy Fund, is a complex and inherently risky product. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, managed futures funds are significantly more complex and often better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors. Pacific Investment Management Co. is marketing this as a type of fund that “Seeks positive, risk-adjusted returns consistent with prudent investment management”. Pacific Investment Management Co. is taking measures to limit risk by using mathematical models to wager on rising assets and falling assets. These models are complex strategies that are typically reserved for sophisticated investors and not those looking for more traditional investments.

Brokers have an obligation to make investment recommendations that are consistent with their clients risk tolerance, net worth, investment objectives and experience in the market. Unfortunately, in many cases, the high risks associated with these investments make them unsuitable recommendations.

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Firms that fail to do so, may be held responsible for any losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
