In March 2020, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) issued an arbitration award to a customer who had sustained losses after investing in UBS’s Yield Enhancement Strategy.

Additionally, the class action alleges that certain conflicts of interest were not disclosed. Damages have been requested in the amount of $1,200,000,000.
