March 2017: Will Haddad Quoted in ACA Insight on Investment Adviser Disclosure Duties.
In a recent ACA Insight article, Will was quoted on an SEC case alleging that an investment adviser failed to disclose, let alone seek approval for, a new compensation scheme:
"While it may seem to an adviser providing ‘additional’ services to a client in a volatile time that it should be paid for those additional services, the SEC has made clear that advisers cannot make up compensation schemes from whole cloth and not tell the client about it," said Pasquarello Fink partner William Haddad. "Even if Landress and his firm believed that they were ‘owed’ this money for their hard work in a tough market climate, the decision of whether to award such additional compensation clearly rested with the funds’ advisory committee (comprised of representatives from the funds’ limited partners)."
