Caroline Goodman, CEO of IPS, will be taking part in a webcast on 29th April 2015 concerning the many shareholder actions involving Tesco.

What’s The Webcast About?

Institutional investors have been barraged with notices of various shareholder actions against Tesco, both in the UK and the Netherlands. The lawyers and funders for each of the six potential actions have been touting why theirs is the safer, or easier, or more cost-effective proceeding. No meaningful U.S. class action option exists, so affected investors must choose between the UK and Dutch actions – as each will require investors to opt in.

Because SRKW has no financial interest in any of these actions, it can act independently and impartially. It has organized a 30-minute webcast to compare the various UK and Dutch options, highlighting the risks, rewards and responsibilities involved in each. This webcast will include independent English and Dutch counsel and will address questions affecting funds, such as:

  • Dutch foundation vs. English action: what’s more sensible?
  • Which Tesco actions are less risky?
  • Who is funding/litigating each action?
  • Are there any out-of-pocket costs?
  • How do I join, and what is the deadline?
  • What are other funds doing?

Who’s Participating?

The webcast will feature a panel discussion among industry experts, all of whom can discuss the Tesco actions impartially:

Mark Willis, senior partner at SRKW, the only provider of truly global portfolio monitoring and class action litigation services for institutional investors, through its U.S. offices and 22 overseas affiliated offices;

Caroline Goodman, Managing Director of London-based Institutional Protection Services, the leading global class and group investor action specialist providing settlement and claims recovery services;

Katherine Dandy, partner at London-based Sackers, a law firm that represents some of the largest pension funds in the UK; and

Martijn van Maanen, partner at the Dutch law firm BarentsKrans N.V., which has significant experience using Dutch foundations for investor actions.

Caroline Goodman, CEO of IPS, will be participating in a webcast on the 8th December 2015 concerning the many proposed shareholder actions against Volkswagen.

What’s The Webcast About?

Institutional investors have been barraged with notices of various competing shareholder actions in Germany against Volkswagen, and at least one in the Netherlands. The lawyers and funders for each of the potential actions have been touting why theirs is the safer, or easier, or more cost-effective proceeding. The pending US class action against Volkswagen is for US-purchased shares only (ADRs), which excludes most American and Canadian funds, as well as UK and European investors. Therefore, affected investors who want a financial recovery must choose not only whether to join one of the 5 competing Volkswagen actions, but also which best suits their needs.

The 30 minute webcast will include independent German counsel and will address questions affecting funds, such as:

  • Why are there so many cases?
  • Which of the German actions is less risky?
  • Does joining a Dutch foundation make sense?
  • Who are the funders and lawyers?
  • Are there any out-of-pocket costs?
  • How do I join, and what is the real deadline?
  • What are other funds doing?

Who’s Participating?

The webcast will feature a panel discussion among industry experts, all of whom can discuss the Volkswagen actions impartially.
