Investors who have suffered losses in the Sanford Bernstein/Alliance Bernstein Options Advantage Fund might be entitled to take legal action. It is alleged that the complex options strategy offered by Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., LLC, and Alliance Bernstein L.P. (“Sanford Bernstein/Alliance Bernstein”) was misrepresented as a safe, low-risk investment. In reality, the now-failed options strategy was highly vulnerable to market volatility, costing investors substantial losses during fluctuations.

The “Options Advantage” fund offered by Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., LLC, and Alliance Bernstein L.P. was reportedly a complex options strategy sold to investors as an investment that offered little risk and a 1-2% annual return. It is alleged that the financial services firm enticed investors through material misrepresentations and omissions about the potential risks associated with the strategy.
Investors were reportedly told that the investment was a “low-volatility” and “cash-free” way to earn a small annual return. In reality, the complex options strategy was highly volatile and subject to market fluctuations. As a result, investors suffered substantial losses. The firm allegedly did not test how market volatility would affect the strategy, thereby only speculating about how the fund would perform.
In 2022, investors were informed that the Options Advantage program was unsuitable for highly volatile markets and that the fund would be closed. Investigations into the failure indicate that the firm made purely speculative decisions on “call” and “put” options that were purchased and sold on the S&P 500. The risky decisions resulted in significant losses to investors. The Options Advantage program was allegedly offered to investors from 2018 until its closing in 2022.
Investors in the Options Advantage fund may be eligible to take legal action. Individuals who suffered losses due to the complex options strategy are strongly encouraged to contact Levin Law for a free case evaluation. Multiple lawsuits have already been filed against Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., LLC, and Alliance Bernstein L.P.
