Institutional investors, particularly public pension funds, have specific needs and obligations.
Legislative and judicial developments over the last two decades have established that institutional funds, the major stakeholders in U.S. public companies, have an affirmative duty to recoup losses resulting from corporate misconduct and securities fraud. Institutional investors are expected to have procedures and policies in place to monitor securities class actions in which they have a financial interest and viable claims
