SEC Sues Former Chicago Hedge Fund Managers

Oct 4 2012 | 11:28am ET

The Securities and Exchange Commission has sued a husband-and-wife team, accusing them of ripping off investors in their hedge fund.

Norman Goldstein and the appropriately-named Laurie Gatherum took at least $147,000 more than they were entitled to through excessive fees and capital withdrawals. While the Chicago couple's GEI Financial Services returned $3.6 million to investors after losing their state license last year due to a number of violations, they still owe the rest, the SEC said.

"For years, the defendants have demonstrated a complete disregard toward the securities laws, their clients and the state of Illinois," the regulator said in its complaint. "They long ago abandoned their fiduciary responsibilities towards their clients."
