SEC Closes Case Against Tipper Jiau

Mar 29 2012 | 11:16am ET

The Securities and Exchange Commission has won a final judgment against a former expert-network consultant convicted of selling confidential information to hedge fund managers.

U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in New York approved a resolution of the SEC's civil case against Jiau; the regulator did not seek any monetary penalties against Jiau, who was ordered to pay more than $3 million after her conviction in June. Jiau is currently serving a four-year prison term.

The final judgment bars Jiau from future securities law violations. The SEC also noted that it had recovered ill-gotten gains earned by Jiau's tippees with her information.

Among those beneficiaries were Barai Capital Management's Samir Barai and former SAC Capital Advisors trader Noah Freeman.
