UBS and Merrill Lynch Puerto Rico FINRA Arbitration Claims

In Investment News this week, I discuss the potential delays victims of UBS and Merrill Lynch who are contemplating filing FINRA arbitration claims against the firms might face.  The entire story can be viewed at the link below.  Since FIRNA only has 9 arbitrators in San Juan, we have been advocating for FINRA to open up the pool of arbitrators to the south east region of the U.S. and give burned investors a choice on where they want their cases to be decided.  FINRA is currently contemplating these requests and is expected to make a decision this week.
