Hedge Funds Need Help in Recovering Losses: Fiduciary Experts Say

Independent forensic professionals, Chris McConnell and Eric Steinwald are two are finding themselves in increasing demand as hedge funds and other investors turn to experts for help in recovering from losses caused by fraud, Ponzi schemes, stock market or real estate market losses.

"Any asset, at any time, may bercome subject to fiduciary duty standards, "McConnell said, "Fiduciary duty is not simply a good idea or a best practice; rather, it's the highest standard known under the law."

McConnell, AIFA of Fiduciary Forensics, has over 25 years of experience in the field and is an acknowledged fiduciary expert in the securities, compensation and valuation fields based upon actual, inside hands-on Wall Street securities industry experience. Steinwald is a principal of Steinwald and Kaufmann, a Brentwood/Los Angeles, California tax and forensics accounting CPA firm, and also has 25 years of experience of serving financial clients. Together, the two bring over 50 years of unmatched expertise to plaintiffs who experience suspicious investment losses of any kind.

"Courts often hold trustees and/or third party investment fiduciaries (banks, brokers, trust companies, investment advisers, hedge funds, and even custodians) may be liable, measured against the expert investment standard regarding personal liability. "McConnell said, "The amount of potential fraud, loss of income, and/or insurance claims looks to increase dramatically as investors face staggering losses. We are ready to help as many people as we can to avoid potential financial catastrophe."

The difference between proving liability and recovering damages and loss is in the actual details, which often provide the edge for success.
