As part of Fideres’s commitment to tackle issues of corporate wrongdoing, we recognize the power of diversity in thought and experience outside of our own team. We recognize the need to tap into informal news outlets, online forums, networking groups and other channels to identify areas where the current economic climate produces inequality, excessive prices, discrimination and unfair consumer treatment. These are the areas where Fideres intends to make a difference, through its investigations, leading to public and private enforcement, when appropriate, through litigation.
To harness this diversity in thought and experience outside of our own team, we have set up an external creative advisory committee to meet once every quarter to brainstorm issues of corporate and financial wrongdoing and present findings to the Fideres team.
