Developed methodology to demonstrate that the fees met Gartenberg standards
Forensic Accounting & Investigation
In both the Harris and Ameriprise mutual fund matters, CRA was retained as an expert witness. Our experts developed a methodology that considered integrated IT, internal accounting and regulatory control, cost accounting, and management systems to demonstrate that the fees met the Gartenberg standards. Our methodology can also help boards of trustees determine the fairness of fees and demonstrate fee rationale in negotiations with mutual fund advisers.
