The attorneys at Stoltmann Law Offices may be able to help those investors recover losses through a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration claim against the brokerage firm who recommended the investment. Structured notes are complex derivative products created by investment banks. They are packaged debt with derivatives to offer customized bets to retail investors while earning fees and raising money. They are often very complex and difficult investments for investors and brokers to comprehend. They typically pay out a high fee to the brokers who recommend them. They may not be suitable for every investor because of their risk and complex nature. A broker has a duty to take into account a customer’s net worth, age, investment portfolio and risk tolerance before recommending an investment to him. If he does not, his brokerage firm may be held liable for failing to properly supervise him.
