Class actions

European Investors pursues class actions on behalf of investors who have incurred losses on their investments due to deception, fraud, default or other forms of misconduct on the part of banks, listed companies, auditors, managers and supervisory directors, or others.

The aim is to obtain justice and compensation for the damage done.

European Investors can rely on the expertise and experience of one of its founding members, the Dutch Investors’ Assocation VEB which, since its establishment in 1924, has won more than €3.5 billion in compensation for its constituents.

European Investors does not accept third party funding or litigation funding.
