Investor Alert: UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (UBS YES)
Have you suffered losses investing in UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (UBS YES)? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution Claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
UBS, a multinational financial services firm, offered the Yield Enhancement Strategy as an option-based trading strategy to increase returns for investors who committed a certain minimum amount of their portfolio (or “Mandate”) to this strategy.
YES is designed “to generate returns through the strategic sale and purchase of SPX index option spreads,” according to UBS.
UBS offered the Yield Enhancement Strategy typically to high net worth investors who were required to allocate a minimum Mandate to the UBS YES program. Investors were often presented with a “slide deck,” or presentation, which purported to describe the Yield Enhancement Strategy program.
According to reports, in recent weeks, UBS Yes investors have started seeing substantial losses in their portfolios. While some investors are expressing serious concerns, the losses are reportedly continuing to increase.
Unfortunately, it appears that some UBS YES investors were asked to provide additional collateral and/or are facing margin deficits. Others reportedly were not able to get out of the Yield Enhancement Strategy programs, and could be facing catastrophic losses.
