As some of the world’s leading institutional investors, Canadian funds have a critically important role to play in recovering assets lost to fraud, which is the focus of a recent article in the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans magazine Plans & Trusts by Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP securities litigation experts.
