Customer Complaints: Sonia Attkiss of UBS Financial Services
According to BrokerCheck, Sonia Attkiss is currently facing two complaints related to the UBS YES Strategy. As of July of 2019, both of these customer disputes are listed as ‘pending’:
- In May of 2019, an investor filed a complaint alleging losses caused by unsuitable investment recommendationsand material misrepresentations related to an options overlay strategy.
- In June of 2019, a UBS customer filed a complaint alleging losses caused by unsuitability and misrepresentations. This investor is seeking $6,000,000 in financial compensation.
Notably, the UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy performed poorly in late 2018. Some investors allege that they sustained far greater losses with the YES Strategy than they ever thought was possible.
Under securities industry rules, brokers and brokerage firms must comply with certain legal requirements — including making adequate disclosures regarding downside investment risks. If they fail to do so, they may be held liable for an investor’s damages.
