How Antitrust Class Actions Will Impact Your Fiduciary Responsibilities

By Allison Gosman, Senior Marketing Specialist, Financial Recovery Technologies

By now, most institutional investors have concluded their fiduciary duty requires filing proof of claim forms in U.S. securities class action settlements. However, many have not yet implemented similar claims filing protocols for U.S. antitrust and non-U.S./Canada securities matters.

In the U.S., there are currently more than 50 active cases in various stages of litigation. For just nine antitrust matters, there’s currently $3.7+ billion in escrow awaiting administration and distribution. While not all antitrust cases receive significant publicity, there is a large pool of opportunities across the globe from which investors can attempt to recover their losses.
