Soured Stocks: Finding an Expert in Financial Portfolio Management



When stock purchases turn out to be lemons, it’s the investor who feels squeezed. IMS Consulting & Expert Services was tasked with finding a financial portfolio wealth management expert for a case involving equity investments that went sour.

Primary Case Issue

When the equity investments of a high-net-worth investment portfolio resulted in major monetary losses, was it bad luck or poor asset management? The stockholder in this breach of contract dispute alleged that the equity portions of certain investment accounts were improperly invested.

Expert Witness Requirements

  • Financial Institution expertise managing investment accounts and portfolios of high-net-worth individuals
  • Knowledge of accepted standards and practices in financial investment management
  • Ability to provide consulting and investment analysis
  • Holds a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) credential or is an independent financial consultant with an MBA

Expert Witness Search

An internal research team submitted 13 potential experts within 16 business days. These expert candidates were pre-vetted by an IMS recruiter and included a mix of both portfolio management experts and private wealth management experts.

Expert Witness Placement

The chosen expert was founder and president of a financial portfolio management firm who had three decades of experience providing investment and wealth management advice to individuals and institutional investors. He serviced high-net-worth clients, and in fact, actively managed thirty investment portfolios valued at up to $25 million in financial assets per client. He formerly served as regional manager for a nationally known capital management firm, and he taught courses on investment analysis and portfolio management for a university’s finance department. This expert held a BA in mathematics and economics and an MBA with a concentration in finance. He was a credentialed CFA.
