Bartle + Marcus Attorneys at Law and Law Office of Jared A. Rose

We help clients recover investment losses.

Investment losses can hurt almost as bad as physical injuries. This is because investment losses, particularly in retirement or in the years immediately preceding retirement, can be life-altering.

For years, you diligently saved money for the future.

You were willing to accept some risks so that your portfolio would have a chance to grow, but you told your investment advisor your risk-tolerance was low. You told him you were a conservative investor.

Then one day you open your account statement, and you see investment losses. These are not normal investment losses, the type you’ve seen everyone once in a while as market fluctuates. These are significant losses you did not expect and had no reason to anticipate. You take a closer look, and the numbers don’t add up. You were told your investments were safe, but now money is gone and you want to know why.

We can help – contact us for a free consultation.

We help clients recover investment losses. Whether your situation involves churning, suitability, unauthorized trading, failure to execute, improper use of leverage or margin, over concentration, negligence or fraud, you need an experienced investment loss attorney to discuss your issues and identify and assess possible strategies for obtaining a successful outcome and recovering your investment losses.

There is no charge for our initial consultation.

In appropriate cases, we represent clients on a contingent-fee basis, so there is no charge at all unless we recover.

A leveraged exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a marketable security that uses financial derivatives and debt to amplify the returns of an underlying index. While a traditional exchange-traded fund typically tracks the securities in its underlying index on a one-to-one basis, a leveraged ETF may aim for a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio.

Leveraged ETFs are available for most indexes, such as the Nasdaq 100 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).

Leveraged ETFs are typically used by traders who wish to speculate on an index, or to take advantage of the index’s short-term momentum. Due to the high-risk, high-cost structure of leveraged ETFs, they are rarely used as long-term investments.

If your account suffered losses in excess of the sort of losses that you were expecting, or in excess of the kind of losses your investment advisor told you that you could expect in a down-market, please contact us. We can have a look at your portfolio and let you know, free of charge, whether we believe that you have a case against the company that manages your investments.

Every investment recommendation made to an investor by a financial adviser must be “suitable” based on the investor’s risk tolerance, investment objectives, financial status and other relevant factors. An investment recommendation may be unsuitable if it is not made in accordance with the investor’s investment objectives; the investor does not have the financial ability to incur the risk associated with the investment; or the investor did not know or understand the risk associated with the investment.
Over-concentration claims are actionable when an investor, at the recommendation of a financial adviser, maintains a portfolio that is over-concentrated in a single issuer and/or asset class. A financial adviser that fails to diversify a customer’s account may be liable should the investment decline in value.
