Portland, OR (PRWEB) June 30, 2013
For more than thirty years Banks Law has evaluated and prosecuted cases of misrepresentation and fraud by taking investments apart, examining the details and fine print, and revealing hidden risks. The firm actively tracks misleading products and unscrupulous brokers, so that research can be put to work recovering money for investors.
Now this information will be available online to help investors avoid costly mistakes. The firm encourages consumers to add to the research and share it with others to spread the alerts quickly.
Investments include variable annuities, structured CDs, non-traded REITs, and other products the firm’s clients have had problems with. These products have been misrepresented, or improperly marketed, or designed from the beginning only to generate high commissions and enrich sellers. As fast as investors can be warned away from one wave of deceptive investments, new waves of “yield-chasing” investments appear.
In a perfect world investors could rely on honest, accurate, common-sense information written in plain language before trusting their money to brokers or investment advisors. Even some legitimate investments are so complex that neither buyer nor seller has a complete understanding of how they work. With this complexity comes concealed risk, as in many collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), municipal bond arbitrage funds, leveraged ETFs, derivatives, and swaps. Other financial products are not suitable for individual investors, but are still sold retail by the large brokerages that underwrite them.
