Suffering an investment loss is never easy, but when your losses were caused by your broker-dealer or stockbroker, you may be entitled to full restitution. One common type of loss are those brought on after investing in structured products.
Some brokers will fail to provide material information or fail to disclose the risks, and investors will wind up having to handle considerable losses. But you may be able to get justice. You can read on to learn more about what structured products are and how to recover full compensation from those responsible.
What Are Structured Products?
Structured products are a type of pre-packaged investment. They normally include assets linked to interest and derivatives. Investors may be drawn to structured products when they are interested in highly customizable return goals. However, there are many risks to structured products, and it is not uncommon for investors to suffer losses.
Restitution for Structured Product Losses
Structured products are not ideal for every investor. In fact, structured notes can be considerably risky for several reasons. They are often illiquid, meaning you cannot access your return without penalty until the note matures.
Structured notes can also be incredibly complex, especially for new investors or those who are not familiar with high-risk instruments. Although they are customizable, this makes it difficult to determine the value of implicit costs.
If your financial advisor failed to provide you with the information you needed before agreeing to purchase a structured product, failed to disclose the risks, suggested them unsuitably, or is otherwise responsible for your structured product investment losses, you may be able to hold them accountable in arbitration with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
