The recent collapse in the price of oil has caused investors in the futures market, energy partnerships, high-yield corporate bonds and shares of oil and gas companies to suffer significant losses. Plummeting oil prices also affect those who have invested in short-term bonds that are linked to the price of oil or other energy-related assets.
In recent years, these securities were touted by brokers as a safe investment that provided potential for high yield investment income. Brokers promoted them as “must-own” investments because they could provide investment income with little to no downside. Thousands of investors, many of whom were seniors investing their retirement funds, believed the information brokers and investment companies provided about these stocks and invested large sums.
These oil, gas and energy stocks turned out to be much riskier and more speculative investments than originally promised; funds and master limited partnerships that focused on oil, gas, and energy investments suffered significant losses and some investors saw more than half of the value of their portfolio disappear after investing in stocks that were touted as safe and reliable investments.
If you sustained financial loss after investing in oil, gas and energy stocks, you do not have to accept the damage to your financial security. Zamansky LLC’s legal team is uniquely qualified to pursue legal action against brokers, fund managers, and others who rendered poor investment advice or over-concentrated your portfolio in high-risk energy stocks.
Do not delay in seeking the help you need to recover your money. Many investors have already taken action and you want to ensure you have the opportunity to recover your own losses. Contact Zamansky LLC today to learn more about your options for pursuing a claim based on improper investment advice, unsuitability of investments, and over-concentration of high risk investments in your portfolio.

As an investor, you have the right to trust that brokers and financial advisors will not give advice that leads you to unknowingly putting your nest egg into high-risk investments. Many investors trusted financial professionals’ promises about the business models of oil and gas investment funds and relied on claims that these investments would not be affected by volatile oil prices. It is not the fault of investors that this trust was misplaced and financial professionals can be held accountable under the law for their actions.
