The Securities Arbitration Law Firm of Klayman & Toskes Investigates Claims
of UBS Customers Who Sustained Losses in the UBS Willow Fund, L.L.C.
NEW YORK -- April 25, 2013
The Securities Arbitration Law Firm of Klayman & Toskes (“K&T”),
www.nasd-law.com, announced today that it is investigating claims of UBS
Financial Services (NYSE: UBS) customers who purchased the UBS Willow Fund
(“Willow Fund”). The Willow Fund is a private hedge fund which was formed in
2000. In October of 2012, investors were notified that the Fund would be
liquidated. While many investors were advised that the Fund was a safe, low
risk product, the Fund has declined about 80%.
K&T is investigating whether UBS adequately disclosed the risks associated
with the Willow Fund, as well as whether investors’ portfolios were
over-concentrated in the Fund. The individual brokers and advisors who sold
the Willow Fund are not the target of this investigation. Instead, K&T is
looking into UBS’s conduct in connection with its marketing of the Fund to its
customers. Further, the law firm is investigating whether the Willow Fund
deviated from its disclosed strategy of investing in distressed debt, and
instead started speculating in foreign sovereign debt credit default swaps. It
is believed that these credit default swaps eventually led to the collapse of
the fund, and caused investors to lose a substantial portion of their
