In Regulatory Notice 17-32 , FINRA recently articulated the grave risks
to investors regarding the sale of Exchange Traded Products. Typically, these products are linked
by tracking short and mid-term VIX future indexes – a very risky and volatile investment and surely not
a safe investment for the average investor.
Exchange Traded Products have resulted in catastrophic losses to many unsuspecting individual investors who
are dependent upon an assured return on their retirement investments for a financially secure
retirement. Unfortunately, a number of brokerage firms have improperly trained their sales staff and have improperly
permitted the sale of Exchange Traded Products involving VIX future indexes, putting profit over the best
needs of the customer.
We offer a free initial consultation to investors who have sustained losses in Exchange Traded Products
and VIX related future indexes. For a free initial consultation, contact the Law
Offices of Timothy J. O’Connor at (518) 426-7700.
