As a market leader in supporting expert testimony in securities litigation, Vega Economics’ Securities & Finance practice provides top tier economic analysis to our clients. We have worked with many of the world’s largest investment banks and have analyzed issues related to materiality, class certification, liability analyses, causation, and damages.

Vega uses advanced data analytics and carefully assesses each case’s unique claims to identify the most robust method employable for addressing the issues of each case.

Publications

  • Looking Forward: The CMBS Litigation Landscape: Vega anticipates that many cases will be filed regarding CMBS trusts following the COVID-19 economic shutdown. Our team of economists present information regarding possible expert analyses relevant to this space and select experts that can assist in these matters.

  • Analysis of Market's Reaction to Plea Agreements: Using recent U.S. public data, Vega analyzed how the announcement of a plea agreement has historically affected a company’s stock returns. We performed an empirical analysis of the impact of announcements of plea agreements on stock market returns using an “event study” approach.

Dashboards
