You can call him @hedgiefraud: Anthony Davian, a hedge-fund manager better known as @hedgieguy, has pleaded guilty to defrauding investors of $1.8 million.
Davian pleaded out to 14 charges of securities fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering in Cleveland federal court yesterday. According to prosecutors, between 2008 and last year, when he was hit with a Securities and Exchange Commission lawsuit, the Davian Capital Advisers founder raised money from at least 20 investors, using it to finance a lavish lifestyle. The SEC called his promised returns “figments of Davian’s imagination.”
“This defendant deceived clients to line his own pockets,” U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach said. “We will continue to aggressively pursue cases in which investors are cheated out of their savings.”
Davis, 34, will be sentenced in July.
