Zamansky LLC Investigates “Steepeners” or Adjustable Rate Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and Medium-Term Notes (MTNs)

January 3, 2020 GMT

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2020--

Zamansky LLC announces that it is investigating losses suffered by investors in “Steepeners” or adjustable rate Certificates of Deposit (“CDs”) or Medium Term Notes (“Notes”). These CDs and Notes were often allegedly issued by banks such as Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase and others, as CDs or notes that paid “enhanced” yield to investors. The enhanced yield was adjustable based on the flatness or steepness of the yield curve.

During 2018, when the yield curve flattened, the values of the Steepener CDs and Notes fell causing investors to suffer unexpected realized and unrealized losses. Then, in 2019, the yield curve inverted and short term interest rates rose to a higher level than long term interest rates causing yet more losses. The market for some of these Steepener CDs and Notes also became very illiquid. These losses were contrary to the expectations of investors who wanted and expected safe, cash preservation investment.
