Oppenheimer: Portfolio Enhancement Program (PEP)


December 4, 2023

Type of alert:


ChapmanAlbin has issued an Investor Alert for the Oppenheimer Portfolio Enhancement Program (PEP). Oppenheimer & Co. allegedly asked its most valuable clients to participate in the PEP program, an opportunity to borrow on margin to generate an extra 5% on its portfolio. The minimum investment was $1.25 million and the opportunity was sold as a hedged investment. However, upon information and belief, it was not as safe as it was marketed. The program could only succeed in a low volatility, low interest rate environment.

Ultimately, Oppenheimer failed to explain that the strategy would fail if the volatility in the market picked up and investors experienced significant losses before Oppenheimer discreetly closed the program.
