UBS advertised its “YES” program as an option-based trading strategy that sought to increase returns for investors who committed a certain minimum amount of their portfolio (called a “Mandate”) to the YES program. The investors were often shown a presentation, or “slide deck,” which purported to describe YES program. UBS YES investors have started seeing losses in their portfolios in December

2018, and those losses have continued to increase even as many investors started expressing serious concerns about the direction of their portfolios and the trading strategy.

The claim filed by the Goldman Scarlato & Penny securities lawyers on behalf of the UBS YES investor seeks compensation for the investor’s losses in view of the trading strategy and risk disclosures surrounding the YES program. The claim focuses on important issues, including (1) whether the UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy fully and adequately disclosed to investors important and major risks associated with the YES program; (2) whether the YES program was suitable for those investors’ investment profile; (3) whether some investors’ portfolios may have been overly-concentrated in the YES program; and (4) whether the actual trading strategy was consistent with the advertised strategy in the YES presentations and brochures.
