HedgeCo.Net (New York) – Hedge fund Aeneas, and itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s founder Thomas Grossman, are under scrutiny in Malaysia as the Securities Commission is probing allegations of stock manipulation.
The $400 million hedge fund firm specializes in long-short emerging markets strategies. The Ã¢â‚¬Å“investigations relating to the manipulation of certain shares are ongoing and individuals acquainted with the facts of the cases have been called in to assist,Ã¢â‚¬Â a Securities Commission spokeswoman told Dow Jones Newswires.
Hedge fund Aeneas Capital Management L.P. suffered big losses that reportedly followed investments in Malaysian shares such as smart card maker Iris Corp., poultry producer FarmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Best Bhd., and Internet related systems provider Mobif Bhd. According to Bursa filings from early 2006, Aeneas bought and sold substantial amounts of shares in these companies.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, declined to say if the commission is working with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in its probe.
