Spruce Alpha Fund is an upstart hedge fund launched in 2014. SEC filings indicate that the Connecticut based fund raised more than $34 million from investors.

Hedge funds employ various complicated trading schemes in an effort to maximize returns. These trading schemes involve risks which cause hedge fund returns to be extremely volatile.

Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They are also required to only recommend investments that are suitable for the investor in light of that investor’s age, investment experience, net worth, investment objectives and risk tolerance.

To the extent that some brokerage firms failed to perform the necessary due diligence and/or made unsuitable investment recommendations, such firms may be liable for investment losses through a FINRA arbitration claim.
