Robert Peters Quoted in FinOps Report: Unclaimed Assets – Delaware Lawsuit Resurrects Ops Headaches

Robert Peters, Managing Director in Duff & Phelps’ Unclaimed Property and Tax Risk Advisory Practice, was featured in FinOps Report discussing the need for unclaimed property operations managers at U.S. financial firms to stay proactive when it comes to ensuring correct administrative and reporting procedures.

Robert recommends that, “Unclaimed property operations managers shouldn’t wait for a court decision in the Univar case.
