Hedge Fund Manager Indicted for Running a $200 Million Mismarking Scheme

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Hedge Fund Manager, Anilesh "Neil" Ahuja, CEO of Premium Point Investments LP was indicted on charges of securities fraud, wire fraud, and conspiracy in New York federal court. Moreover, two of Ahuja’s colleagues, Amin Majidi and Jeremy Shor were also indicted on similar charges.

From 2014 through 2016, Ahuja and his colleagues made their fund appear more attractive to would-be investors by mismarking the value of two of their key fund products; Premium Point's flagship mortgage credit fund and a related fund geared toward retirement accounts. Furthermore, mismarking the funds allowed Ahuja to charge higher management fees and forestall redemptions by disguising the fund's true performance.

As a result of the mismanagement of the hedge fund, Premium Point filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy this March.
