Houthoff is representing a Dutch pension fund in a more than € 1 billion claim against their former asset manager for inadequate covering of the interest risk of the pension fund.
On the basis of the appeal of Houthoff, the Supreme Court quashed on material and unprecidented formal grounds the decision of the Enterprise Chamber in the Meavita-case. The Enterprise Chamber's decision was rendered after the by far most costly investigation so far. It must fully reconsider the whole case.
