According to Advisor One, “Two investment advisors at Oppenheimer & Co. were charged by the SEC with misrepresenting to investors the valuation policies and performance of a private equity fund that they manage.” It appears from these reports that these Oppenheimer advisors misrepresented reports that were connected to investments in Oppenheimer Global Resources Private Equity Fund I (ORG) between 2009 and 2010. “Without admitting or denying the charges, Oppenheimer has agreed to pay more than $2.8 million to settle.”
