The White Law Group announces the filing of a FINRA arbitration claim against Credit Suisse and UBS involving high-risk, royalty trust stocks.
The White Law Group submitted a claim to FINRA Dispute Resolution on behalf of a family from Texas, alleging claims for violation of common law fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, and negligent supervision.
The claim further alleges that Credit Suisse Securities, LLC and UBS Financial Services, Inc. unsuitably invested its clients in the following high-risk royalty trust stocks: Hugoton Royalty Trust and Permian Basin Royalty Trust. The claim seeks damages between $1,000,000.01 and $3,000,000.
It is alleged that Credit Suisse Securities, LLC and UBS Financial Services, Inc. failed to perform the necessary due diligence on these investments prior to recommending them to these particular investors. Broker-dealers have a fiduciary duty to adequately disclose the risks involved in an investment before recommending it, and must perform the necessary due diligence to determine whether the investment is suitable for the investor.
Filing a Claim to Recover Financial Losses
FINRA Dispute Resolution is an arbitration venue for investors with claims against their brokerage firm or financial professional. It provides investors with an opportunity to attempt to recoup their investment losses and is an alternative to filing such claims in court.
“We believe there are many more investors who have suffered losses due to unsuitable investment recommendations who don’t realize they have recourse, or may be unaware of any wrongdoing,” said D. Daxton White, managing partner of The White Law Group, a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, investor protection and securities regulatory/compliance law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Seattle, Washington.
“Brokerage firms are required to supervise their advisors to make sure that they are complying with FINRA rules. If it can be determined that the financial advisor’s employers failed to adequately supervise him, these firms can be held responsible for any resulting losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.”
