Zamansky LLC Investigates Potential Investor Claims to Recover Losses Suffered by Cambridge Investment Research Customers in the LJM Preservation and Growth Fund (LJM)

August 19, 2021 Investigations

The law firm is investigating potential legal claims for investors who purchased shares of the LJM Growth and Preservation Fund (LJM) through Cambridge Investment Research, and then suffered losses when LJM collapsed.

Recently, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) reached a regulatory settlement with Cambridge Investment Research in which the firm was formally censured, fined $400,000, and ordered to pay restitution of $3 million to certain customers who purchased LJM.  FINRA accused Cambridge Investment Research of wrongfully selling LJM to customers who were listed as conservative and moderately conservative investors.  FINRA also accused Cambridge of having insufficient supervisory systems.

On February 5-6 2018, LJM suffered an 80% loss in value due to a spike in market volatility, then, weeks later, LJM dissolved and liquidated.  LJM, which was marketed as “selling volatility” through trading S&P Futures Index options, was an enormously speculative and high risk investment.  LJM was not suitable for all but the most aggressive investors who desired speculation, and its serious risks were not known or apparent to investors.

If you purchased LJM through Cambridge Investment Research, you may have a potential legal claim to recover your losses.  Under the FINRA regulatory settlement, some investors are eligible for partial restitution for their losses.  You may be entitled to further restitution if you file your own legal claim through our law firm.
