The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission recently announced that it has ordered Montford Associates, an Atlanta investment advisory firm, to pay a penalty of $650,000 for failing to disclose payments the firm allegedly received from a hedge fund to which it steered clients.
According to reports, Montford failed to disclose the payments and specifically represented to its clients that the firm did not receive any compensation in connection with giving advice to their clients.
