BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Securities Law Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A., or, announced today an investigation into the 1861 Capital Management municipal arbitrage funds sold by UBS (NYSE:UBS) and other broker dealers. The funds we are currently investigating include: 1861 Capital Municipal Enterprise Domestic Fund, LP, 1861 Capital Municipal Enterprise Offshore Fund, Ltd., 1861 Capital Discovery Domestic Fund, LP, and 1861 Capital Discovery Offshore Fund, Ltd. In marketing 1861 to investors, UBS targeted high net worth individual investors who were generally risk averse, took a conservative approach to investing and were interested in the safety and security offered by tax free municipal bonds. The firms that used municipal arbitrage attempted to take advantage of differences between municipal bonds and other types of debt, including Treasury securities and corporate bonds. This was the strategy of the 1861 Municipal Arbitrage Fund. Unfortunately, many of these types of strategies are highly leveraged. The leverage, often downplayed in marketing material, caused massive losses with the collapse of the market in 2008 and 2009. Based on our analysis, there was lack of disclosure and/or misrepresentations concerning the risks of these products, and investors who were looking to preserve their capital sustained substantial losses.

Investors who purchased 1861 Capital Management municipal arbitrage funds are urged to explore their legal rights and options. The attorneys at the Securities Law Firm of Menzer & Hill, P.A. are dedicated to pursuing claims on behalf of investors who have suffered investment losses.
