How Chicago Clearing Makes Money for Hedge Funds


The Problem


Filing securities class action claims is tedious, complicated, and time-consuming. Managing a multitude of claims from notice to filing to distribution for hundreds of cases over the span of years, even decades, is inefficient and impractical. Yet, hedge funds have a duty to their partners, as well as a clear economic interest to extract every dollar owed their funds. What to do?
