According to a statement released by Perry Capital on Wednesday, a Wells notice was recently sent to the firm's founder, Richard Perry, who was formerly with Goldman Sachs.
Carl Berg, a portfolio manager at Perry, also received a letter from the SEC, saying that regulators are recommending legal action against the firm.
