Every year class action settlements worth billions of dollars are reached in securities & antitrust class action lawsuits. It is estimated that less than 30% of institutional investors regularly file settlement claim forms to participate in these settlements. Not only could that mean millions of dollars per year in unrecovered assets, there is the potential for huge compliance exposure to funds for not meeting their fiduciary responsibilities to claim such monies legally owed to their funds.
In addition to its Class Action Lawsuits Data, DIH also offers a Claims Management Service to help fund managers to recover their share of class action settlements, and comply with their fiduciary responsibilities.
