“ARAVALI FUND LOSSES -TIME MAY BE RUNNING OUT”

Lax & Neville LLP has been retained by several investors who lost money in the Aravali Fund claiming it was inappropriately sold by Deutsche Bank Securities and other brokerage firms in 2006 and 2007. The Aravali Fund was sold to investors who were seeking income and safety of principal as an alternative to a portfolio of municipal bonds. In reality, the Aravali Fund was a very risky interest rate arbitrage hedge fund, and not long after inception, the fund plummeted in excess of 90% in value and was liquidated. A large FINRA arbitration award was rendered against Deutsche Bank for sales practice abuses concerning the selling and marketing of the Aravali Fund. The FINRA arbitration panel found Deutsche Bank liable for the investor’s losses in the amount $803,850, which appears to represent about half of the client’s investment loss in the Aravali Fund. Lax & Neville has been successful in obtaining significant settlements for its clients who invested in the Aravali Fund. Investors only have (6) six years from when they purchased the Aravali Fund to file a claim. Once the (6) six years have elapsed, an investor’s claim is no longer eligible for submission to FINRA arbitration. If you have lost money investing in the Aravali Fund or have information about Deutsche Bank’s marketing of the Aravali Fund, please call Lax & Neville LLP, (212) 696-1999.
