Complex Financial Instruments

If you need help, talk to an investment loss lawyer today to see what your options are. Complex financial instruments are, well, complex. They are some of the most confusing types of investments you can put money in. They do often have the potential to generate considerable returns, but since they are so complicated, they are often unsuitable for a large number of investors. 

If you invested in complex financial instruments and suffered substantial losses, you may be entitled to full repayment of your losses if your broker is at fault. There are many situations in which this could happen to even the most seasoned investor.

What Are Complex Financial Instruments?

Complex financial instruments simply refer to financial instruments that are particularly unique or complex in their securities model. Some examples of complex financial instruments could include:

  • Convertible issuances
  • Debt products
  • Structured products
  • Embedded derivatives
  • Embedded warrants
  • Earnouts
  • Stock-based compensation
  • Futures

These types of investments can each carry their own risks. And complex financial instruments aren’t always a good fit for investors. If you invested in complex financial instruments and suffered losses, you may be able to get your money back in certain cases. 

How to Recover Losses Caused by Complex Financial Instruments

Losing money through investing isn’t unusual. But your broker should never be the cause of your investment losses. When they are, you can initiate a complaint with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and seek full recovery of your investment losses. Your case will be heard by a panel of arbitrators. 

Your broker will also have the opportunity to dispute the evidence you present and give an explanation for their investment recommendations. But if the arbitrators come down in your favor, the respondent can be ordered to pay you for your losses. You can learn more about what your options are when you contact an attorney.
