Levin Law Investigates CYES Strategies Offered by Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, UBS, and Other Banks and Broker-Dealers
Levin Law has been investigating financial institutions such as Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, UBS, and others that recommended Collateral Yield Enhancement Strategies (CYES) to investors. CYES option strategies are risky and resulted in substantial losses to investors during a volatile 2018 end-of-the-year market. Dozens of investors have filed claims against their broker-dealers alleging that financial advisors recommended CYES option strategies to numerous high net worth clients without fulling disclosing the potential risks, particularly the risk of loss in volatile markets. Many investors allege that they were told that the CYES strategy was a safe, low-risk options strategy that would enhance returns with downside protection
In truth, CYES option strategies, like the ones offered by Harvest Volatility Management, are based on an “Iron Condor” strategy Iron condors are risky in volatile markets. They are complex, involving call and put spreads and should only be marketed to sophisticated investors with a full understanding of the potential risks.
If you suffered losses as a result of a CYES investment strategy, you might be entitled to recovery through a FINRA arbitration.
