Who is the Receiver and what are his responsibilities?

 

The Court appointed Burton W. Wiand, Esq. as Receiver to oversee the marshalling of assets of the entities in this Receivership, and to make recommendations to the Court regarding the plan of distribution of assets to qualifying claimants. Mr. Wiand also files periodic reports with the Court to advise of his progress, findings, and proposals. These reports are posted to this website after they are filed with the Court.

What happened to my investment in funds controlled by Mr. Nadel?

 

The SEC alleges in its Complaint that Mr. Nadel issued false account statements that overstated the value of investments in the funds that he administered by approximately $300 million. The Receiver, and the other professionals that he retains, such as attorneys, accountants, and investigators, will identify and gather the assets that belong to the entities in this Receivership and determine whether any other funds exist. The availability of funds to pay investors will depend upon the results of the liquidation of the Defendants’ and Relief Defendants’ assets and other undertakings by the Receiver and other parties in connection with the Receivership.

How much of my investment can I expect to receive back?

 

It is too early to tell how much money will be available for distribution to injured investors, but it appears the value of money or other assets the Receiver may recover will be less than the sum of all original investments. The Receiver will make every effort to recover and distribute as much as possible to qualifying investors.
