Nuveen All Cap Energy MLP Opportunities Fund Paying Down Debt
Have you suffered losses investing in Nuveen All Cap Energy MLP Opportunities Fund (JMLP)? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA Arbitration.
According to reports, due to recent market conditions, including the sharp sell-off of energy and energy-related securities, Nuveen management has elected to take certain actions impacting Nuveen Energy MLP Total Return Fund (NYSE: JMF) and Nuveen All Cap Energy MLP Opportunities Fund (NYSE: JMLP). Specifically, both funds are paying down a portion of their borrowings to reduce leverage ratios that have become elevated, especially in recent days, as a result of the sharp decline in value of portfolio holdings.
Unfortunately for investors in the fund, the Nuveen All Cap Energy MLP Opportunities Fund has suffered catastrophic losses over the last year.
MLP Funds are Complex Investments
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high risk funds that invest primarily in MLPs.
Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) are extremely complex and risky, making them better suited for institutional investors or wealthy and sophisticated retail investors.
Aggressive financial advisors may have unsuitably recommended the MLP funds in an effort to chase yield. Investors who buy solely on the basis of the dividend may experience losses as the dividend is cut and the stock price declines in response.
If your financial advisor over-concentrated your portfolio, you may have a viable claim to recover your losses. Financial advisors are required to make suitable investment recommendations, accounting for your age, income, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives. Diversification is the key to reducing risk. As such, over-concentrated exposure to any sector or investment but particularly volatile industries like oil and gas, can be unsuitable for many investors.
