Breaking News!

Did you lose money at Bear Stearns?

Investors have been led astray by Bear Stearns execs. Bear Stearns management utterly failed to properly disclose the potential risk to their net worth on risky mortgage backed securities. They margined these securities with valuations that were not independently determined by the market place but by themselves. These mortgage related losses were not due so much to "illiquidity" as they like to say, but by greed and lies. Click to read more about Bear Stearns losses.

Did you lose money with the Madoff Fund via Rye Investment Management or
Tremont Group Holdings? 

Did your broker or investment advisor recommend that you let Mr. Madoff manage your money?  If so, it may be better than you think. Investors whose money got into Mr. Madoff’s hands through an intermediary, may have the best chance for recovery of their losses from that intermediary.

Madoff Securities Hedge Fund Ponzi Scheme

Several large investment managers and funds of funds funneled money to Mr. Madoff. "Rye Investment Management", a division of hedge fund "Tremont Group Holdings" apparently let Madoff “invest” 3.1 billion dollars; funds that Rye was being paid to manage for other investors.

Under SEC rules persons and firms who are in the business of recommending investment advisors, are themselves investment advisors, and are fiduciaries with regard to the people to whom they are making that recommendation. A fiduciary making a recommendation that any investment advisor is an appropriate place to put your money, should be able to back up the recommendation with hard facts.

According to published reports, Tremont Group Holdings said it had "exercised appropriate due diligence in connection with the Madoff investments.” Judgment on whether or not they did is still open.

We have reviewed some of the paperwork that Mr. Madoff was sending out. Even the most basic brokerage documents, new account forms, confirmations and monthly brokerage account statements look good at first glance. To a trained eye, however, they clearly demonstrate non-compliance with minimum brokerage industry requirements.

Add to that the fact Mr. Madoff’s extraordinary claims of annual performance, and the fact that no large, reputable CPA firm ever audited that performance, and the truth is a great many firms who were careful with their customers money stayed away. A competent due diligence investigation should have scared away many more.

The so-called professionals who claim to have done extensive due diligence on Mr. Madoff before investing either didn’t know what to look for, or didn’t care.

If they “approved” a Ponzi scheme like this, it is really hard to say that they asked the right questions. Most financial information, especially for firms dealing in the amounts in which Mr. Madoff claimed to be dealing, is either certified or verifiable.

If Mr. Madoff wasn’t actually doing trades, as is now alleged, then none of the information he was sending out could have been verified. And a due diligence officer, trying to verify Mr. Madoff’s claimed performance, and not reviewing verifiable trades, is wasting his time, and placing client funds in jeopardy. And that is exactly what happened here.

If your broker or investment advisor recommended that you let Mr. Madoff manage your money, you may be in a far better position than others that dealt directly with Madoff, as regards the recovery of your losses.
