Citigroup Hit for $54 Million in FINRA Arbitration Award Relating to MAT/ASTA Funds

Investors just won a $54.1 million award against Citigroup in a FINRA arbitration. The award involves investments pertaining to MAT and ASTA funds. The investments involved high risk leveraging and arbitrage of municipal bonds that purportedly lost over 70% of their value.

It is believed that many Florida-based investors bought the MAT and ASTA funds and likewise suffered substantial losses.
