Schwab Shells Out Almost $200K Over a Fallen Fund

News summary by MFWire's editors

The Schwab YieldPlus Fund continues to face legal flak. MFWire has learned that a Finra arbitration panel in San Diego ordered the San Francisco-based brokerage to pay nearly $190,000, including damages and fees, for allegedly breaching fiduciary duty and written contract (and more) related to the fixed income fund.

A spokesman for Schwab declined to comment on the ruling.

Meanwhile, YieldPlus, which first drew fire last year after suffering substantial losses, faced a new set of attacks this week.

It could have been worse for Schwab. The investor in the San Diego dispute, the widow of Everett Ross, had requested total damages of $432,189, plus all costs; yet the panel awarded less than $174,000, including costs, to Ross' widow. The rest of the award covered Finra fees related to the arbitration.
