F-Squared Fined $35 Million for Misrepresenting AlphaSector Exchange Traded Fund

December 22, 2014

F-Squared Investments, based in Massachusetts agreed to pay $35 million and admit wrongdoing to settle an action by the US Securities and Exchange Commission that it defrauded investors through false performance advertising about its flagship product, an exchange traded fund (ETF),  AlphaSector.

The SEC alleged that F-Squared falsely advertised a successful seven-year track record for the investment strategy from 2008-2013. In a separate action the SEC charged former CEO and co-founder Howard Present with making false and misleading statements to investors.
