Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES) Explained

This options program was promoted by UBS stockbrokers as well as those from other firms to clients as a low-risk way of generating more income. Marketed to high potential clients as a safe, low-risk way of increasing their returns by a few percentage points on the more conservative aspects of their portfolio, many clients soon found themselves making a loss of up to 20% when market volatility hit. From what was supposed to be a conservative strategy yielding a 2-3% return, investors felt that the loss was unjustified. However, when they brought it up with their brokerage firm, not only were they turned away, but they also found out that the firm had positioned itself to make substantial fees from investors.

YES Losses

Compared to other kinds of scams, it is relatively easy to prove that you have been the victim of a YES under the UBS options program. Proof of your working relationship with the firm as well as portfolio transactions confirming you have bought into the YES scheme and suffered losses will be required. As the YES was represented to investors in a way that did not correspond with actual fact, your stockbroker could be guilty of lack of due diligence, amongst many others.

Recovering Damages from Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES) Losses
