SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO – July 03, 2019 – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE – HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Shepherd, Smith, Edwards & Kantas (SSEK Law Firm) continues to help investors and bondholders of Puerto Rico bonds and closed-end funds concentrated in Puerto Rico bonds to recover their financial losses from various financial firms. SSEK Law Firm has filed several lawsuits against the brokerage firms involved with selling these products and is focused on assisting as many customers as possible to recoup as much as possible before the window closes on holding these firms accountable. These firms are alleged to have been involved in selling these unsuitable investments to their customers:

— UBS Financial Services Inc. of Puerto Rico

— UBS Securities

— Popular Securities, LLC

— Santander Securities, LLC

— Oriental Financial Services, Corp.

Many residents of Puerto Rico were sold these investments and have suffered devastating financial losses and distress as a result of their investment.
