UBS AG Trigger Phoenix Autocallable Optimization Securities –Investigation
Did you lose money investing in UBS AG Trigger Phoenix Autocallable Optimization Securities at the recommendation of your financial advisor? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA Arbitration.
UBS AG Trigger Phoenix Autocallable Optimization Securities are unsubordinated, unsecured debt obligations issued by UBS AG linked to the common stock or American depository share of a specific company.
“Investing in these securities involves significant risks”, according to the prospectus. “You may lose some or all of your principal amount. The contingent repayment of principal only applies if you hold the Securities until maturity. Any payment on the Securities, including any repayment of principal, is subject to the creditworthiness of UBS. If UBS were to default on its payment obligations, you may not receive any amounts owed to you under the Securities and you could lose your entire investment.”
“The securities are significantly riskier than conventional debt instruments. The issuer is not necessarily obligated to repay the full principal amount of the securities at maturity, and the securities can have downside market risk similar to the underlying stock. This market risk is in addition to the credit risk inherent in purchasing a debt obligation of UBS. You should not purchase the securities if you do not understand or are not comfortable with the significant risks involved in investing in the securities.”
