Woodsford identifies significant corporate wrongdoing and related financial loss, brings it to the attention of the affected parties, and helps them collect together to engage with the wrongdoers.
We have a particular focus on identifying catastrophic breakdowns in ESG at, and related misrepresentations to the capital markets by, major public equity companies. We bring these issues to the attention of investors, help them quantify their financial losses, and collect them together to engage with the investee company (and sometimes its auditors and other related parties) in the pursuit of accountability and compensation. Our engagements include most of the top 100 global asset managers by AUM, and many state retirement, sovereign wealth and pension funds. To date, we have focused on institutional shareholders.
