33-9961 13-Oct-2015 Administrative Proceeding
Order Instituting Cease and Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 8A of the Securities Act of 1933, Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease and Desist Order
On October 13, 2015, the SEC instituted settled cease and desist proceedings against UBS AG. UBS offered and sold to 1,900 retail investors approximately $190 million of medium term notes linked to a proprietary foreign exchange trading strategy called the "V10 Currency Index with Volatility Cap ('V10' or Index)." The SEC alleged that: "UBS engaged in three types of conduct that were undisclosed to investors - taking unjustified markups, engaging in hedging trades with non-systematic spreads and trading in advance of certain hedging transactions - that negatively impacted or, in the case of trading before hedging transactions, had the potential to negatively impact, pricing inputs used to calculate the V10."
