SEC Charges Investment Firm with Disseminating False Information to Prospective Investors and Clients

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Hyaline Capital Management, LLC and one of its founders, Justin D. Meadlin were charged by the SEC with defrauding prospective investors and clients. The SEC's complaint, filed in federal court in New York, charged Mr. Meadlin and Hyaline with violations of the anti-fraud provisions of the securities laws and sought injunctive relief, disgorgement and penalties.

According to the SEC complaint, Mr. Meadlin disseminated dozens of emails to prospective investors and clients in which he inflated Hyaline's assets under management (AUM). Mr. Meadlin also began touting a purported "quantitative" trading strategy and a fictitious Hyaline Capital Quantitative Fund (HCQF) in email solicitations to more than two dozen prospective investors even though the firm did not employ any quantitative strategies.

TESTIMONIALS

Jim, Stephany and the whole team were a God send.  We felt like we were put into a situation where we had no advocate. Jim’s team came in with a strong, well laid out strategy on how to get our story heard. Where our outside compliance company had no ability to help, our Broker Dealer was impenitent, and the regulators were aggressive pursuing vague rules, Jim came like a barricade against an assault we did not understand. Though you pay member dues to be affiliated with FINRA and a B/D, you have no voice. The only thing that is truly heard in this un-level playing field is a bulldog’s bark like Jim’s. I would encourage anyone to call Jim and his team to find a real ally in the tough and complicated world of securities regulation. They are truly the best.
