Deminor filed claims with the Madoff Victim Fund for more than 4,000 investors. These investors had collectively suffered more than USD 200m of losses in connection with the Ponzi scheme run by the New York-based broker Bernard Madoff. The Madoff Victim Fund was set up by the U.S. Department of Justice to indemnify the victims of the Madoff fraud. As part of the filing process, investors needed to provide evidence for the existence of an investment chain between themselves and Bernard Madoff Investment Securities LLC. The filing process took around 4 years to completion and first distributions from the fund were made at the end of 2017.
