Allegations Against Rabih M. Msallem

It is alleged that Rabih M. Msallem (CRD#: 3199470) recommended structured notes to clients for the past several years. In his recommendations, according to the allegations, he would promote the downside protections without fully explaining the risk to the investor or ensuring that the product was in the best interest of the investor.

SEC Warning About Structured Notes

An investor bulletin issued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission warned consumers about the potential risks of structured notes. The bulletin noted that structured notes are complex offerings that should not be invested in unless you fully understand the potential risks.

A structured note is a security issued by a financial institution. Its returns are based on things like interest rates, foreign currencies, or equity indexes. Your return is linked to the performance of the reference asset or index. Before investing, your broker or investment adviser should thoroughly explain the risks involved with these complex, often illiquid products. 

As recommended by the SEC, before you invest in a structured note, you have a firm understanding of:

  • The fees and costs associated with the investment;
  • The issuer’s estimated value;
  • Whether investing in a structured note is suitable based on your investment goals, objectives, and risk tolerance.
  • The comparative costs of other investments available to you;
  • How long your money will be tied up in the structured note since they are designed to be held to maturity;
  • Whether you will be able to sell or liquidate your investment prior to the maturity date;
  • The tax implications;
  • How the payoff structure works; and
  • If the potential returns are limited.

If your broker failed to adequately explain the structured note that they recommended, you might be eligible to file an investment claim if it resulted in losses.
