UBS ETRACS ETNs are Risky, Complex, and Difficult-to-Understand Investments

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.

If you or someone you know invested in UBS ETRACS ETNs, contact Levin Law for a free case evaluation.  Levin Law accepts cases on a contingency-fee basis.
