April 2018-Cincinnati, Ohio
We are investigating Cincinnati-based registered investment adviser Horter Investment Management, LLC. (“Horter“).
In December 2017 the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) entered an Order and imposed sanctions against Horter, including a censure, and disgorgement of $482,595, prejudgement interest of $46,209 and a civil penalty of $250,000.
According to the SEC Order, Horter made misstatements to certain advisory clients concerning F-Squared Investments, Inc. , materially inflated, and hypothetical and back-tested, performance track record for its AlphaSector strategy between January 2012-November 2014. The SEC found that Horter violated securities laws by publishing, circulating and distributing advertisements that contained untrue statements of material fact.
Horter Investment Management has been registered as an investment adviser with the SEC since January 2007 and as of September 2017 had over $1 billion in regulatory assets under management.
F-Squared Investments was an investment adviser headquartered in Wellesley, MA, registered with the SEC until January 2016. In December 2014, the SEC settled a fraud action against F-Squared in which the company admitted to making material false claims in connection with their AlphaSector strategy.
