Recovery of Investment Losses
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending MFS Meridian Funds – Global Energy Fund to their clients.
Aggressive financial advisors may have unsuitably recommended energy 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.
