Lost money in a dispute with a capital market provider and unhappy with how it views your claim? Then, head to SIDREC for an informed third-party view and outcome. By Elaine Boey

Those of you who have been reluctant to invest in an approved investment product or service offered by a licensed capital market intermediary might take comfort in knowing that there is a body looking out for your interests.

The Securities Industry Dispute Resolution Center, or SIDREC, which started operations in 2011, provides investors an avenue to air their grievances against a capital market provider. They receive an independent view, an outcome to their dispute and, perhaps, even a cash settlement.
