According to the US Attorney’s office, insider trading charges against three hedge fund portfolio managers and one hedge fund analyst will be announced today at midday.
One of the managers who will be charged is Samir Barai.
Obstruction of justice charges will also be announced against two of the portfolio managers.
We’ve been told by a law enforcement source that the charges against the individuals are currently in a sealed complaint.
We were also told these charges are brand new and involve four people that have so far not been charged in connection to the FBI’s massive insider trading probe.
More when we get it.
