The Globalisation of Securities Litigation: the opportunities and challenges for UK pension schemes.

As investors have looked increasingly overseas for their investments, they have also had to ensure that the tools in their engagement armoury are fit for purpose to protect their members' and clients' assets. Securities actions are an effective way of protecting investors’ interests when investing overseas and particularly in the U.S., which has a tried and tested method for compensating defrauded investors. This session will explore some of the interesting developments in case law and legislation across Europe, as well as developments in the U.S., which highlight the options for global investors who are seeking legal redress. With the continued amplification of ESG concerns, we will also explore how active engagement in litigation is being used as a means of bringing about corporate governance reforms which otherwise would not have been achieved.
