How to Recover your Losses in LJM Fund LP

Have you suffered losses investing in LJM Fund LP or another LJM Partners offering? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you to recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

LJM Partners, LTD, a Chicago-based fund manager, reportedly closed its doors after its complex trade strategy failed on February 5 and the company and an affiliate saw losses of 80 percent or more, according to Reuters.

The company, a “commodity trading adviser” or CTA, managed a series of strategies that attempted to effectively make money from the difference between how much the market moves and how much investors are willing to pay to insure against those price swings.

According to a prospectus, The LJM Fund, LP attempts to profit, primarily, from the volatility premium–the spread between implied volatility (investors’ forecast of market volatility reflected in options pricing) and realized (actual) volatility. The Fund aims to capture this premium by writing (selling) call and put options on S&P 500 Index futures.

The LJM Fund LP is a high risk investment and would only be suitable for sophisticated, high net worth investors.

Unsuitable Investment Recommendations

The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended LJM Fund LP or other LJM offerings to investors.

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on all investment recommendations they make. They must ensure that each investment is suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, financial needs, and investment experience.

If a broker or brokerage firm makes an unsuitable investment recommendation or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.

FINRA operates the largest securities dispute resolution forum in the United States, and has extensive experience in providing a fair, efficient and effective venue to handle a securities-related dispute.
