The newsletter of GBRW Expert Witness
In this edition of Expertise, we have articles commenting on two major potential dispute areas, one extensively publicised and the other much less so.
- In our August issue, Mike Trippitt discussed open-end investment funds and the liquidity issues raised by the well-publicised Woodford Equity Income Fund problems. Staying with this subject, John Wylde discusses the insurance issues which will be relevant to a number of the parties involved in distribution and administration of the different Woodford funds.
- We also carry an article by Aysha Suzuki of Financial Markets Consulting & Resourcing, a specialised financial markets practice with whom GBRW Expert Witness has worked very successfully to identify experts in specialised areas, including the Libyan Investment Authority/Goldman Sachs litigation and recent EURIBOR prosecutions. Over the past couple of years, various European tax authorities have been investigating so-called “Cum-Ex Trading”, where multiple tax claims have been submitted for a dividend which has only been paid once. The impact of this alleged tax trading scheme has been estimated at €55bn and is said to extend to Germany, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Norway and Switzerland.
