Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A. is investigating and representing investors nationwide that were sold steepeners, which are notes or CDs that pay varying levels of interest depending on the steepness or flatness of the yield curve.  When the yield curve flattened in 2018, these steepeners rapidly declined in value and either stopped paying interest or paid much less interest.  In 2019, the yield curve inverted and short term interest rates rose to a higher level than long term interest rates. This yield curve inversion caused even more losses.

The negative impact on investors in the following types of structured products has been significant: Structured CDs, Market-Linked CDs, Leverage Callable CMS Curve Linked Notes, Callable Quarterly CMS Spread-Linked Notes, Callable Variable Rate Range Accrual CDs, Callable Interest Rate Spread CDs, Callable CMS Spread Notes, and Senior Callable CMS Steepener Notes.

Investors across the US are reporting that they were misled by their financial advisors or stockbrokers when they were told that the “notes” or “CDs” were high-quality, fixed-income investments.  In reality, these investments were complex structured products, often with short-term teaser interest rates, long-dated maturities, and obscure features that caused them to lose capital rapidly.  Brokers misrepresented to investors that the steepeners they sold to them always paid an attractive “yield.”  Furthermore, many brokers concentrated their customers in these structured products.

Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A. is investigating claims against brokerage firms including Centaurus Financial, Inc., J.P. Turner & Company, Aegis Capital Corp., Wells Fargo Advisors, and other brokerage firms for structured products investment losses.  Please contact us if you purchased steepeners through Ricky Mantei (CRD# 1098981), Cindy Chiellini (CRD# 1015592), Katherine Nishnic (CRD# 2499553), Dana Matthew Hawkins (CRD# 5731136), Alan Applebaum (CRD# 500336) or Joseph Andreoli (CRD#1718688).
