Court Affirms Arb Award Against Madoff Feeder Fund

We have always been of the opinion that Madoff feeder funds have potential exposure to investor claims for not disclosing or monitoring the feeder funds investments with Madoff. That exposure is heightened in some instances, where the feeder fund simply turned over the funds to Madoff, took a piece of the management fees, and did little else.

A New York court has confirmed a AAA arbitration award against Ascot Partners in favor of an Ascot investor for failing to disclose Madoff's exclusive role in managing the investor's assets.

Professor Jill Gross, at the ADR Blog, has an analysis of the decision. The arbitration panel, which rendered a 23 page decision in the arbitration, was chaired by none other than David Robbins, a well known investor attorney.
