PennyMac Mortgage Trust Lawsuit “FINRA”
Haselkorn & Thibaut (www.investmentfraudlawyers.com) investigating possible sales practice violations by financial advisors who were advocating PennyMac Mortgage Trust (NYSE: PMT) and many similar properties and mortgage-related investments sold to investors.
For investors, this is a particularly hard blow as these are the kinds of investments that were often recommended by financial consultants to clients who have been searching for income in their portfolios (often retirees or similarly conservative investors). This was likely a recommendation that was anticipated to be reduced volatility and rather conventional, today investors are faced with substantial losses as a consequence of a degree of risk to their original investment chief, which was likely never correctly disclosed (if it was disclosed at all) by their financial advisors.
Many advisors used strategies of buying higher yield investments like PMT stock in the hopes of raising potential yields, they also increased the level of risk, and some investors might not have been advised of those possible risks as well. Although Financial advisers may assert that these were sudden market events, the reality is these are similar dangers to those experienced in the 2008-2009 monetary crisis. These potential risks were substance risks that have to have been adequately disclosed to customers before recommending these investments separately or as part of a portfolio or investment plan.
A number of these investments were sold by financial advisers without appropriate risk disclosures, as these are thought to be very risky and complicated (some even insecure due to the leverage) securities. In cases where these were advocated retirees or similar conservative income-seeking investors, there is the potential for sales practice abuse as a result of misrepresentations, but more often because of omissions of material fact, or due to a lack of appropriate supervision.
