SEC Charges Investment Adviser with Custody Rule Violations

October 29, 2014

Dear Friends,

Today, the SEC announced charges against an investment adviser for violating the Custody Rule, for consistently delivering audited financials late.

Pursuant to the Custody Rule, investment advisers with custody of private fund assets, must distribute audited financials to investors within 120 days of fiscal year end.  In this case, the firm delivered the audited financials up to eight months late. “The custody rule is not a technicality. It is a critical investor protection provision designed to ensure investor assets are safe,” said Andrew M. Calamari, Director of the SEC’s New York Regional office.
