Accused Trivium Insider-Traders Banned

Sep 6 2011 | 1:01pm ET

The founder of Trivium Capital Management and a former analyst at the firm have been barred from the industry for alleged insider-trading.

Robert Feinblatt was banned for five years and Jeffrey Yokuty for three, the SEC said. Both are allowed to apply to have those bans lifted after those periods.

Trivium, which has since closed, Feinblatt and Yokuty were sued by the SEC in January, accused of participating in the Galleon Group insider-trading scam. The two men allegedly received confidential information from Roomy Kham, a former Intel Corp. analyst, Galleon employee and once a star witness in the government's case against Galleon founder Raj Rajaratnam.

Feinblatt has also been ordered to pay $2.6 million in penalties.
