Based on publicly available information, it is believed that UBS and the other broker-dealers that sold UBS ETRACS ETNs may have failed to fully and accurately disclose all material risks of the UBS ETRACS ETNs prior to recommending and selling such investments to their customers. Brokerage firms that did not fully and accurately describe the material risks and benefits of the ETRACS ETNs or engaged in other wrongdoing regarding UBS ETRACS ETNs may be liable for investors’ losses.

UBS ETRACS ETNs are risky and complex investments. UBS ETRACS ETNs are senior, unsecured, unsubordinated debt securities that are designed to track the total return of a specific market index. UBS ETRACS ETNs are risky and leveraged products that can cause massive investment losses and are unsuitable for many investors, including risk-averse retirees, investors seeking stable, fixed income returns, and investors seeking to preserve their principal.
Due in part to the spread of COVID-19, the global securities markets have dropped precipitously. As a result, UBS has instituted mandatory redemptions of certain ETRACS ETNs and has frozen the trading of other ETRACS ETNs. Many ETRACS ETNs investors have lost a substantial percentage of the money that they invested in ETRACS ETNs.
