Puerto Rico Bond Losses

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

**Update**

The US government has announced that it will not bail out Puerto Rico. Subsequently, the commonwealth may default on its debt.This would cause a historic economic collapse since Puerto Rico’s governor said the island cannot pay its $72 billion in debts. The inability of the U.S. territory to repay its debt, combined with the financial crisis in Greece, may have far-reaching implications for financial markets and their American investors.

Puerto Rico became a territory of the United States in 1898. It cannot legally file for bankruptcy like American cities have done when faced with similar fiscal crises. Puerto Rico’s constitution states that it must make debt payments before paying for any other government services. This leaves the island in a fiscal limbo if it cannot make its payments.

Many investors in Puerto Rico municipal bonds have concern for their investments. The commonwealth has been able to stave off a bail out but the island remains indebted more than $70 billion dollars, or about 68% of its gross domestic product. Furthermore the three major bond credit rating agency downgraded Puerto Rico bonds to non-investment grade also called “junk status.”

According to the New York Times, “Puerto Rico is struggling with far more debt than analysts believe it can repay.” In addition the Times suggests that much of the debt is owned by middle-class Americans who indirectly bought municipal bonds as part of their retirement accounts.

Unlike states, US territories and commonwealths are not able to file bankruptcy. According to reports, the island is seeking a $2.2 billion dollar loan.

Unfortunately for many Puerto Rico bond investors they may have suffered significant losses in their investment. Although junk bonds pay high yield, they also carry higher than average risk that the debtor will default on the bond.

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending these risky bonds. Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to adequately disclose the risks of any investment. Additionally, brokerage firms are required to ensure that all investment recommendations made are suitable in light of the client’s age, investment experience, investment objectives, net worth, and income.

Puerto Rico Bond Losses

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Many investors in Puerto Rico municipal bonds have concern for their investments. The commonwealth has been able to stave off a bail out but the island remains indebted more than $70 billion dollars, or about 68% of its gross domestic product. Furthermore the three major bond credit rating agency downgraded Puerto Rico bonds to non-investment grade also called “junk status.”

According to the New York Times, “Puerto Rico is struggling with far more debt than analysts believe it can repay.” In addition the Times suggests that much of the debt is owned by middle-class Americans who indirectly bought municipal bonds as part of their retirement accounts.

Unlike states, US territories and commonwealths are not able to file bankruptcy. According to reports, the island is seeking a $2.2 billion dollar loan.

Unfortunately for many Puerto Rico bond investors they may have suffered significant losses in their investment. Although junk bonds pay high yield, they also carry higher than average risk that the debtor will default on the bond.

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending these risky bonds. Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to adequately disclose the risks of any investment. Additionally, brokerage firms are required to ensure that all investment recommendations made are suitable in light of the client’s age, investment experience, investment objectives, net worth, and income.

Brokerage firms have the responsibility to research these funds prior to recommending them to a client to insure that the risk of the mutual fund is in line with the client’s investment objectives and risk tolerance.

If you have suffered investment losses in a mutual fund that was too risky for your particular situation, you may have recourse against your broker-dealer. For a free consultation, call The White Law Group at 312-238-9650.

Have you suffered losses investing in Market Vectors Bold 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.

An ETF, or exchange traded fund, is an investment fund that tracks the an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of assets like an index fund. ETFs are traded on the stockmarket and experience price changes throughout the day.

While ETFs are often sold as conservative ways to track the market, or a particular sector of the market, this is an over-simplification of the complicated trading strategies necessary to accomplish this. ETFs can be extremely complex and risky. They are better suited 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.

If you suffered losses investing in Market Vectors Bold ETF and would like a free consultation with a securities attorney, please call The White Law Group at (312)238-9650.

The $85 million under the Term Loan Facility is not due until September 12, 2016, if the Senior Secured Notes are refinanced prior to July 2, 2015…. The Company is actively working with investment banking advisors to evaluate alternative financing sources. No assurance can be given that such financing will be available on terms that are acceptable to the Company, or at all…. Absent payment of the interest by the end of the cure window on May 1, 2015, we will be in default under the indenture for the Senior Secured Notes, which will result in the acceleration of our obligation to repay all principal and interest due under the Senior Secured Notes.”

The filing went on to state that “[w]ithout making the required interest payment, undertaking a successful refinancing or accessing additional liquidity, the Company will not be able to fund its commitments, including the April 1, 2015 interest payment, to the holders of the Senior Secured Notes or the lenders under the Term Loan Facility and will be in default under the Senior Secured Notes and the Term Loan Facility. If these defaults occur, the Company will be unable to continue as a going concern.”
