The Securities Law Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A. is investigating Merrill Lynch related to their sales practices of the Mariner Access Funds and Mariner 2x Access Funds. Merrill Lynch raised hundreds of millions of dollars for the fund from its clients. According to the prospectus, the Funds gave Merrill Lynch clients access to hedge funds and funds of funds managed by Mariner Investment Group, Inc.. The funds ended up losing in excess of 75% of their value, leaving investors with staggering losses. Funds such as the Mariner Funds are extremely risky investments which are generally not suitable for most investors. Upon information and belief, Merrill Lynch improperly recommended the Fund to investors without disclosing the true risks involved.
