Documentation

All claimed trading activity as well as holding positions at the commencement and end of the Class Period must be properly documented. Our company always provides an ample amount of time for the claimants to obtain required documentation and information. As part of our claims administration process, we send written notices to claimants whose filings were deemed either partially or completely undocumented. If the documentation is not provided by set deadlines, we reserve the right to reject such claims, partially or in full.

Please note that proper documentation is not limited to confirmation slips and brokerage statements. The information below outlines the wide variety of documents that may serve in place of supporting documentation:
