The part­ners Wolfgang Schirp, Tibet Neusel, and Peter Apel, to­gether with ex­perts from the com­mer­cial sec­tor, are found­ing the Ak­tions­bund Akt­iver An­leger­s­chutz e.V., in or­der to bet­ter bundle in­vestor in­terests and thereby strengthen their po­s­i­tion in re­la­tion to their de­fend­ants. In this way, we were able to i.a. help in­vestors sev­eral times to reach quorum and a ma­jor­ity at the fund level and to ex­change the con­tro­ver­sial ini­ti­at­ors in the fund management.
