Recovery of Highland Floating Rate Fund Losses

Have you suffered losses in a Highland Floating Rate Fund?  If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.

Although Highland’s sales literature claims that its floating rate funds seek “capital preservation and the management of credit risk while utilizing leverage to increase yield potential,” this representation grossly understates the risk of these funds.  Each of the Highland Floating Rate Funds, including the Highland Floating Rate Advantage Fund, the Highland Floating Rate Opportunities Fund, and the Highland Floating Rate Fund, have suffered substantial losses over the last few years.  The Highland Floating Rate Advantage Fund, for example, declined by more than 50% in 2008, a precipitous decline even relative to the overall decline in the market.

Due to the increase in the sales of floating rate funds, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is now paying closer attention to the manner in which these funds are marketed and sold.  In a recent “investor alert,” FINRA expressed concern about financial advisor who downplay the potential risks of floating rate funds while emphasizing the higher potential returns.

The White Law Group continues to investigate the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly selling high-risk floating rate funds, like the Highland Floating Rate Funds, to their clients.
