Navellier and Navellier & Associates Allegedly Distributed Ads Regarding Vireo AlphaSector which were Materially False based on Information First Obtained from the Strategies’ Model Manager, the Now-defunct F-Squared Investments Inc
Navellier and Navellier & Associates allegedly distributed advertisements about Vireo AlphaSector which were allegedly materially false based on information originally obtained from the strategies’ model manager, the now-defunct F-Squared Investments Inc, according to the aforementioned Complaint presently under review by attorneys Joe Peiffer and James Booker.
Navellier & Associates, which at present has about $1 billion in assets under management, allegedly later came to figure out that the track record of F-Squared was purportedly fabricated, the Complaint notes.
Navellier, rather than informing its clients, allegedly arranged to sell the Vireo business line to F-Squared and allegedly made a handsome profit, the Complaint reports.
The SEC goes on to allege that Navellier Associates allegedly asked for proof that the F-Squared strategies had a live record, but F-Squared allegedly refused on grounds of client confidentiality, the Complaint states. Finally, the SEC complaint alleges other due diligence efforts were also allegedly inadequate, and that the company allegedly persisted with its plans to market the AlphaSector strategy.
