$4 Million Claim

An arbitration claim against Morgan Keegan was filed May 22 with the office of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and their Office of Dispute Resolution on behalf of an investor who lost an astounding $4 million. The plaintiff alleges damages relating to the sale of unsuitable bond funds.

According to the filing, the claim is based on alleged misrepresentation and omission of material information in the identified Funds’ registration statements and prospectus releases with regard to the nature, and the extent of the Funds’ investments in collateralized debt obligations (CDSs), together with the resulting exposure to the sub prime mortgage market.

The claim alleges further damages stemming from alleged false and misleading statements issued by Morgan Keegan with regard to the Funds’ safety, and capacity for generating income.
