Seniors Fall Prey to Improper Bond and Fixed Income Investment Transactions

Since the financial crisis of 2008, the volatility of the financial markets, particularly the fixed-income investments and bond markets, have left many senior citizens with devastating losses.  Concentrated positions in bonds with inferior or “junk” bond ratings have left many senior citizens with devastating financial losses they will never make up in their lifetimes.

Changes in bond trading procedures in the past 10 years, including the TRACE (Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine) and other regulatory initiatives has served to protect investors from unscrupulous sales activities, many investors remain exposed to extraordinary risks in the bond markets as a result of improper cross-selling, bond dumping, excessive concentrations of speculative bonds, bond defaults in accounts which should not have been neglected and otherwise allowed to accumulate to positions and debt instruments.
