“He was sued for malpractice as a result of the decrease in asset value, as measured in US dollars.”

Even the most responsible, skilled and experienced Investment Adviser can innocently become involved in a professional liability claim.

CONSIDER THIS REAL LIFE EXAMPLE:

An Investment Adviser invested institutional pension assets abroad. He liquidated a position and converted from Euros to US dollars. Although he correctly and promptly filed all paperwork, the liquidation was not executed in a timely manner, and in the interim the US dollar appreciated significantly against the Euro.

He was sued for malpractice as a result of the decrease in asset value, as measured in US dollars. After months in court and expensive legal fees, he paid a $2,000,000 award and his professional reputation suffered.
