Many investors have incurred unnecessary losses associated with the investment strategy at UBS “Yield Enhancement Strategy” (YES). The program is a complex short-option/short strategy to generate income.
The UBS YES investment strategy was marketed to high net-worth clients whose primary overall investment objective was the safety of principal, income, or whose risk tolerance was low. Unfortunately, the strategy was very risky resulting in substantial losses.
Investors Seeking to Recover UBS YES Losses
For many investors, a private customer arbitration dispute through FINRA enables them to bring a claim and potentially recover their investment losses. These types of disputes generally involve only paper discovery and are usually faster and more efficient compared to traditional court litigation.
Haselkorn & Thibaut has reason to believe that over 600 households were invested by UBS into the YES program. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of those households have sought to recoup their investment losses to date.
