Friedman Kaplan High-Frequency Trading Task Force members Scott M. Berman, Anne E. Beaumont, and Christopher M. Colorado authored an article in the November 7, 2014 issue of Pensions & Investments, titled "High-Frequency Trading: Considerations and Risks for Pension Funds." The article discusses investigations and litigations that have so far been brought by governmental entities and private litigants related to high-frequency trading, and provides a guide for pension funds concerned with whether and how their portfolios may have been affected by HFT practices. The authors outline issues that funds should consider, steps they should take if they believe they may have been harmed, and potential avenues for recourse.
