Lax & Neville LLP, has been retained by investors who lost money in the Aravali Fund, which 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 arbitrage scheme comprised of a significant short position in treasury bonds, interest rate swaps and a highly levered pool of relatively illiquid municipal bonds. Not long after inception, due to the very risky nature of the investment, the Aravali Fund plummeted in excess of 90% in value, and is now being liquidated. Many investors have been significantly damaged as a result of the inappropriate marketing and selling of the Aravali Fund. Indeed, at least one Deutsche Bank broker who sold the Aravali Fund has claimed that it was misrepresented to him by Deutsche Bank. 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.
