"Neil made a significant gift but asked that it be invested at Valhalla," she said.
"With Neil's fund, because it was outside our investment guidelines, he did a personal guarantee of 10 percent," she said. In other words, if the fund did not generate at least 10 percent per year, Moody promised to make up the difference. (article details) [cached]

It appeared that the bottom fell out of the stock markets, however, Neil Moody didn't care much. On his December 10, 2008 letter, he repeated his usual statements: Not only is your money safe, but generating profits.

The returns generated by Arthur's black box trading program called Microstar was too good to miss for Neil, a former Paine Webber stock broker, who moved from New York to Sarasota, Fl. Neil established Valhalla, a hedge fund, and convinced both Arthur and Arthur's investors to invest so that the pair can make a big money through 2% management and 25% incentive fees over the S&P 500 Index hurdle.
After Arthur went missing, Neil sent investors a shocking letter stating:
Investors later learned that Arthur started losing money soon after Neil established Valhalla in 1999 and, to perpetuate this Ponzi scheme, Arthur caused the funds to use capital from new or existing investors to pay original investors "trading gains" as reflected on their false monthly statements.
Afraid of revealing his losing trades, Arthur threatened to stop providing investment advice when Neil insisted on auditing the funds.
