Chetan Kapur, sole managing director of ThinkStrategy Capital Management, was recently accused of hedge fund fraud and intentionally misleading investors about the positive returns of the fund.
The illegal and fraudulent scheme ran from 2002 to 2010. In a recent indictment, Kapur was charged with investment adviser fraud, wire fraud and securities fraud. The official indictment was handed down by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and was unsealed in mid July. In it, Kapur was accused of persuading investors to buy into the fund through omissions and misleading or outright false statements about the fund's performance. Kapur and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission came to a settlement in November about other claims that the investment firm intentionally deceived its investors. In this settlement, the SEC claimed that Kapur invested with Arthur Nadel's Valhalla and Victory funds as well as Samuel Israel's Bayou Superfund, both of which have since been proven not be fraudulent funds, and thus was guilty of defrauding investors. Kapur and ThinkStrategy neither admitted to nor denied the claims in the SEC settlement. Kapur told ThinkStrategy investors that the funds had accounts totally more than $360 million, when in fact by the time it collapsed it had less than $125,000 available.

ThinkStrategy Capital Management LLC's Chetan Kapur was accused by the U.S. of deceiving investors into buying shares in his hedge funds in a scheme that lasted from 2002 to 2010.
Kapur, ThinkStrategy's sole managing director, was charged with securities fraud, investment adviser fraud and wire fraud in an indictment unsealed today by prosecutors in the office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Kapur "deceived investors into purchasing shares in the ThinkStrategy Capital Fund and ThinkStrategy Multi-Strategy Fund through false and misleading statements and omissions," prosecutors alleged. In November, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and Kapur agreed to settle claims that ThinkStrategy deceived investors about its track record of positive returns. Today's indictment offers no details of Kapur's alleged crimes and doesn't mention Israel, Nadel or their funds by name. Kapur made an initial court appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas, who ordered him detained. Kapur was arrested yesterday as his flight arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Assistant U.S. Attorney Bonnie Jonas said. Kapur faces a statutory maximum of 125 years in prison if convicted of all seven counts, Bharara's office said. Kapur was scheduled to be arraigned before U.S. District Judge John Keenan on July 25. Kapur and ThinkStrategy, which the SEC said managed $520 million in assets at its peak in 2008, didn't admit or deny the agency's claims in the settlement.

ThinkStrategy Capital Management and Chetan Kapur
The SEC charged New York-based hedge fund firm ThinkStrategy Capital Management LLC and its sole managing director Chetan Kapur with fraud in connection with two separate hedge funds they managed (ThinkStrategy Capital Fund and TS Multi-Strategy Fund). At its peak in 2008, ThinkStrategy managed approximately $520 million in assets. The SEC's complaint filed on Nov. 9, 2011 alleges that ThinkStrategy and Kapur engaged in a pattern of deceptive conduct designed to bolster their track record, size, and credentials. In particular, they materially overstated the performance of the Capital Fund and gave investors the false impression that the fund's returns were consistently positive and minimally volatile. ThinkStrategy and Kapur also repeatedly inflated the firm's assets, exaggerated the firm's longevity and performance history, and misrepresented the size and credentials of firm's management team. ThinkStrategy and Kapur consented to the entry of judgments permanently enjoining them from violating the antifraud provisions of the securities laws, and have agreed to pay financial penalties and disgorgement in an amount to be determined by a federal court. Kapur consented to the entry of an SEC order, instituted Nov. 30, 2011, barring him from association with any investment adviser, broker, dealer, municipal securities dealer, municipal advisor, transfer agent, or nationally recognized statistical rating organization.
