Zamansky & Associates LLC announces an investigation into potential claims by UBS brokerage account customers who purchased structured notes called Double Short Leveraged Securities Linked to the Barclay’s 10 Year Treasury Index, and other “short” structured notes linked to S&P Indexes.

The sales of double short, short or other leveraged notes linked to indexes are volatile investments that are very risky to investors, according to Jake Zamansky.

Zamansky & Associates LLC announces an investigation into potential claims by investors and brokerage account customers of brokerage firm UBS Financial Services Inc. (“UBS”) over certain structured products. The investigation concerns Double Short Leveraged Securities Linked to the Barclay’s 10 Year and 30 Year Treasury Indexes, and other “short” structured notes linked to S&P Indexes.

According to the Free Writing Prospectuses (FWP) filed with the SEC, available at http://www.sec.gov, Barclays issued many of these “short” structured notes in 2010. One issue by Barclays matures this month in March 2013 according to its FWP, and investors stand to potentially incur large losses. Considering that the Dow reached an all-time high this past Tuesday, as reported by Reuters, investors who purchased these “short” notes may be due for an unexpected surprise. As more "short" or "inverse" notes come due, and the markets hit new highs, investors who purchased these notes as a hedge or safe investment may incur losses.

Jake Zamansky believes that these type of leveraged and short or inverse structured notes are complicated, speculative investments that may be unsuitable for retirees, conservative or moderate investors. The sales of double short, short or other leveraged notes linked to indexes are volatile investments that are very risky to investors, according to Jake Zamansky. Zamansky believes that these products are highly speculative in nature, and too opaque for most investors.
