Moazzam “Mark” Malik SEC Complaint
Moazzam “Mark” Malik, Purported Hedge Fund Manager, Faces SEC Fraud Charges
Moazzam “Mark” Malik, a purported hedge fund manager in New York City, was charged by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) with allegedly stealing money from his investors, according to recently released SEC documents.
Moazzam “Mark” Malik falsely claimed to be allegedly operating a hedge fund with roughly $100 million in assets under management while allegedly also soliciting investors with promises of consistently high returns, according to SEC documents.
Even though Malik raised $840,774 from investors, his fund allegedly never made tangible investments, and never held more than $90,177 in assets as Malik repeatedly took out the cash and spent it as his own, the SEC further alleges, and Malik has also reportedly refused or delayed the majority of redemption requests he has received from investors.
Moazzam “Mark” Malik Allegeldy E-mailed Investors that He Was Dead, Used Investor Money to Pay for Harvard and Luxury Travel
Moazzam “Mark” Malik, furthermore, went so far as to invent a fictitious fund employee who supposedly sent one investor an e-mail claiming that Malik had died, the SEC alleges. The SEC also goes one to describe how Malik bankrolled a lavish lifestyle which included luxury travel, dining, jewelry, and continuing education courses at Harvard and his subscription to a matrimonial matching website.
Malik has been continuing to solicit investors amid the redemption requests, according to the SEC’s complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The SEC further reports that Malik changed his firm’s name several times since its creation in 2010. Initially he called it Wall Street Creative Partners before changing it to Seven Sages Capital LP, and then American Bridge Investment Group LLC. Most recently Malik named his firm Wolf Hedge LLC, according to the SEC.
