Pinnacle Notes Legal Action

A US law firm, Kirby McInerney, has spoken about possible legal action that can be taken in US Courts in connection with the Pinnacle Notes.

Some investors have already expressed interest to join this action but the law firm needs more members to take part before they can proceed. There is no upfront fee involved to join the suit. Investors will only need to pay Kirby McInerney if they are successful in their law suit and the fee will be based on a percentage of the money recovered from the financial institution that is being sued.

Investors of Pinnacle Notes who are interested to join the suit or need more information can send an e-mail to [email protected] providing the following information:

  • your name
  • mobile phone
  • email address
  • amount invested
  • type of Pinnacle Notes (which series)

As I understand, the law suit is not against the distributor of the Pinnacle Notes so those who have already settled on a partial compensation with their distributor would still be able to join.

The Mandatory Redemption Event has been officially announced for the Pinnacle Series 2, and letters have been sent to us. For the SGD Tranche, there is a total of USD 4,070,606.58 to be paid back to the Tranche B Notes-holders. Converted into the SGD, this amount is equal to SGD 5,141,176.11, the Exchange Rate they used was : SGD 1.2630 to 1 USD.

On a pro rata basis, each note-holder will receive SGD 1,023.11 per Tranche B Note.

I first bought the notes at SGD 5,000 per Tranche B Note.

Hence, my loss is SGD 5,000.00 – SGD 1,023.11 = SGD 3976.89 per Tranche B Note.

It’s quite a loss to me. What can I do now ? Thanks, but this is sickening.

PN, thank you. I have raised the issues, but the distributor kept saying they are still investigating and has not come out with a position yet. To be fair to them, I am still waiting and am hoping to be able to settle this amicably with them for some reasonable compensation. I am being fair and am not saying here that it is their fault entirely.

However, even upon this, the distributor is not giving me a final position on their actions for me.

Do I continue to wait, or start the legal process across country if necessary.

Did anyone hear that Pinnacles 2 is very likely to experience a Mandatory Redemption Event too ? The indicative price as of yesterday was only 12% per note. All the series seems to be dropping one by one.

The letter about this ‘very likely event’ has been sent out recently. But the series has not gotten redeemed yet, probably as the year turns around. What can we do at this moment ?

By the way, what can we ask from our distributors ? Some partial compensations ?

    Depending on the circumstances you bought the notes, you may be able to ask for some compensations for the distributors. If you can prove that you are a conservative investor and have been misled by the distributors, you chances of getting compensation is high.

interesting… those who have settled still can participate?

i thought usually when you settle, you will have to sign a form giving up ALL form of further recourse.

    Further recourse towards the distributor. In this case, they are going after the creator of the product.
