Recovery of Energy Sector Exchange-Traded Funds

Have you suffered losses investing in Energy Sector Exchange-Traded Funds (“ETFs”)?  If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses in a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the investment.

Crude oil prices have crashed over the last several months, bringing the Energy Sector down with it.  Over the last three months, the Energy Sector is down by 22.30%.  Energy ETFs offer exposure to the Energy Sector by linking to an index of commodity related equities that tracks either the overall Energy Sector, industries within the Energy Sector, or individual energy commodities, such as crude oil, gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, or others.

While ETFs are often sold as conservative ways to track the market, or a particular sector of the market, this is an over-simplification of the complicated trading strategies necessary to accomplish this.  Additionally, tracking a particular sector of the market is not necessarily a conservative trading strategy (depending on the concentration level of the investment relative to the other assets in your account and the particular sector).

Financial professionals and brokerage firms that sell such products are required to perform adequate due diligence on the investments to ensure a reasonable likelihood of success, and to evaluate whether the investments are suitable in light of the client’s age, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Firms that fail to perform adequate due diligence, or that make unsuitable recommendations, can be held responsible for losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.

If your financial advisor bet big on an Energy Sector ETFs and you suffered substantial losses, you may have a claim to recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.
