Mutual Fund Fraud Attorneys

Failing to Communicate the Risks of Mutual Funds

Representing Clients Throughout Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and Nationwide

Most investors understand mutual funds to be highly diversified investment vehicles with a high level of safety. Mutual funds are often considered a good choice for retirement investment portfolios for those seeking a high level of income while preserving assets.

This reputation is not necessarily well deserved. Some mutual funds subject investors to enormous levels of risk — and some mutual fund companies and brokerage firm tell investors this. But some do not. Still other brokerage firms misrepresent risky mutual funds as those that are safe.

The securities fraud attorneys at Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A. (DKR) have represented a number of investors who lost money in mutual funds described to them as “an alternative to a money market account” (one of the safest investment vehicles available). Some of these mutual funds have lost 50 percent, 70 percent, as much as 90 percent of their value.

DKR pursues securities arbitration claims for clients seeking to recover investment losses they suffered when brokers steered them into mutual funds that are unsuitable for their risk profile.

  • Did your broker misrepresent the high-risk nature of the mutual fund he or she proposed you purchase?
  • Did your broker fail to disclose material facts that would have made these risks clear?
