Madoff Investors Thought They Had $41 Billion With Firm: Table

Date: Wednesday, January 14, 2009
Author: Josh Fineman, Bloomberg.com

Clients of Bernard Madoff, the money manager charged with fraud, are still trying to calculate their losses, and a Bloomberg tally of disclosures and news reports shows investors think they had about $41 billion with his New York-based firm.

In some cases, individual investor and bank losses may also be included in the total of reports from funds. Before his arrest Dec. 11, Madoff, 70, confessed to his sons that his “giant Ponzi scheme” may have cost clients as much as $50 billion, according to an FBI complaint.
