The UBS Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES) involved investing in options with a complex series of put and call spreads with the same expiration date and different strike prices with a strategy called an “iron condor”.
UBS marketed its Yield Enhancement Strategy (YES) as a safe way for investors to increase return on their money at a time when interest rates were low. Unfortunately, it was quite risky, the risk may not have been adequately disclosed, and some investors lost a lot of money.
