Winter Garden Florida Securities Attorneys Handling Hedge Fund Investment Disputes
Winter Garden Florida has scores of stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices. With so many stock brokerage firms and investment advisory offices, comes the potential for their stockbrokers, financial advisors, and other representatives to misrepresent and mislead investors about investing in Hedge Funds and engage in all kinds of stockbroker misconduct which violates Federal and Florida securities laws and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) rules and stock brokerage firms policies and procedures.
For example, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) charged Charles Irwin of Winter Garden Florida for being part of an alleged hedge fund fraud. Mr. Irwin was a registered investment advisor and Principal of Freedom Capital before allegedly enabling clients to place mutual fund orders after 4:00 p.m. ET. Mr. Irwin and the defendants allegedly submitted orders through JB Oxford, who allowed trade orders to be submitted through 4:15 p.m. ET and accepted confirmations till 4:45 p.m. ET while still receiving that day’s NAV. In one year, over 95 of the 1,959 orders were placed or modified after 4:00 p.m. ET. The scheme continued when the respondents allegedly misrepresented themselves to become members of the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC). Mr. Irwin and another defendant allegedly created five entities, Unified Pension Inc., National Pension Plans Inc., Retirement Planning Consultants Inc., Pension Planning Professionals Inc., and Benefit Planning Consultants Inc. to receive approval to register the entities as members of the NSCC, giving them the ability to submit mutual fund purchases till 3:00 a.m. ET. In one month, Mr. Irwin and the defendants processed 63 late mutual fund purchases and 50 sales through two of the entities. In a settlement with the SEC, Mr. Irwin was ordered to pay disgorgement of $31,649.50 and pay prejudgment interest in the amount of $5,613.86. For his cooperation with the SEC, $22,838.68 was waived for a total of $38,000 to be paid to the U.S. Treasury.Experienced Securities Attorney For Investors With Hedge Fund Claims In FINRA Arbitrations Throughout Winter Garden Florida and Nationwide
