LJM Capital Preservation Growth Fund

There are options for clients of Tembion Capital Management, LLC broker Mark Jensen (CRD# 2748816) who suffered investment losses in LJM Capital Preservation and Growth Fund. Jensen has been registered with Tembion Capital Management, LLC in Sante Fe, New Mexico since 2012.

LJM Partners is an investment management firm that operates the mutual fund LJM Capital Preservation and Growth Fund (NASDAQ: LJMIX). The investment, “seeks capital appreciation and capital preservation with low correlation to the broader U.S. equity market. Under normal circumstances, the fund invests primarily in purchased (aka ‘long’) and sold (aka ‘short’) call and put options on Standard & Poor’s 500 Futures Index (‘S&P’). The fund seeks to achieve its investment objectives by capturing gains on options sold on S&P futures contracts that can be purchased (‘closed’) at a later date for a lower price than the price realized when originally sold,” according to U.S. News & World Report. It is alleged that LJM Capital Preservation and Growth Fund was not focused on capital preservation and instead exposed investors to unacceptably high risk of catastrophic loss by not taking appropriate steps to preserve capital in down markets. Investing in volatility-linked products is extremely complex and risky and likely not a suitable and recommended strategy for the average investor.

Jensen has been the subject of eight customer complaints between 2018 and 2020, one of which was denied, according to his CRD report:
