How to Manage Liability Under the Prudent Investor Rule – September 20, 2011

Dean Mead’s Trust & Estate Litigation Practice Group presents a breakfast briefing on How to Manage Liability Under the Prudent Investor Rule.

The Florida Prudent Investor Act was enacted in 1993 to establish the duties owed by a fiduciary in managing investment assets. Given the historic market collapse in recent years and the uncertainty in today’s markets, a fiduciary must be vigilant in complying with the Act to avoid liability for mismanagement of assets. This presentation will focus on managing a fiduciary’s liability under the Florida Prudent Investor Act.
