NEW YORK, NY, US, October 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm of KlaymanToskes is representing a New Jersey couple seeking $776,000 in damages sustained with Nabil “Bilo” Bouab at American Portfolios Financial Services, Inc.

According to the claim (FINRA Case No. 22-02410), after the investors opened discretionary accounts, Bouab and American Portfolios began shifting the investors accounts from diversified mutual funds and ETFs into speculative, equity investments including Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”).

Bouab and American Portfolios concentrated the investors’ retirement accounts in highly speculative equities, including the following SPACs. Since their highs, the SPACs have seen significant declines as indicated below.

• SoFi Technologies Inc (NASDAQ: SOFI) -77%
• Skillz Inc (NYSE: SKLZ) -97%
• DraftKings Inc (NASDAQ: DKNG) -80%
• Clover Health Investments Corp (NASDAQ: CLOV) -91%
• AppHarvest Inc (NASDAQ: APPH) -95%
• Cronos Group Inc (NASDAQ: CRON) -86%
• Foley Trasimene Acquisition Co
• Paysafe Ltd (NYSE: PSFE) -92%

According to securities attorney Lawrence L. Klayman, Esq., “Bouab and American portfolios should have considered the total composition of securities in our clients’ accounts. Their failure to implement a diversification strategy to manage the risk of speculative equities like SPACs is considered negligent and mismanagement of discretionary accounts.”
