Oil and Gas Investment Attorneys
Just as the oil and as limited partnerships proliferated in the 1980s and 1990s, Wall Street has invented a new set of oil and gas energy sector products to capture more of your savings for themselves. These investments along with traditional stock and bond investments in the energy sector are aggressively promoted during the period of booming oil and gas prices and then abandoned when the energy sector market collapses leaving investors with huge losses. Attorney Pearce knows this market well because he has been representing investors in stockbroker disputes involving this sector since 1980, over 40 years.
This is not a new phenomenon to financial advisors who have had many lessons over the years about the volatile nature of this market and when the market goes south they tell investors not to worry and to hold their investments because prices always rebound and investors will always recoup their investment capital placed in the energy sector. While that may have been true decades ago, some new products in the energy sector are leveraged multiple times and blow up permanently when the energy market tanks. Some of the more exotic structured oil and gas products have features which mandate liquidation at certain price points where investors lose any opportunity to participate in any energy sector market rebound. Other complex oil and gas investments involve the rolling of commodity futures contracts and/or option contracts that lose money when the market rebounds when investors thought the opposite was supposed to happen. Welcome to the new world of investing in the oil and gas market and the reason you need a knowledgeable, skilled and experienced FINRA arbitration lawyer to represent you when you have suffered an unreasonable amount of losses in your oil and gas market related investments.Representing Clients Throughout Florida, Nationwide And The World In FINRA Arbitrations
Investing in the oil and gas market directly or indirectly is not for everyone. Investors must understand that all of the investments in the energy sector are volatile and therefore, risky investments. Even investments in the traditional dividend paying energy sector stocks are never guaranteed. Further, over-concentration of investor’s portfolios in this sector has been a perennial suitability problem. Lately, financial advisors have been pushing the more complex Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) and other Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) tied indirectly to the oil and gas market through various indices that are often misunderstood by not only investors but the stockbrokers and investment advisors themselves.
