FRAUD ALERT—The Wolper Law Firm Is Investigating Claims Against Strong Investment Management And Its CEO, Joseph Bronson
The Wolper Law Firm is currently investigating claims against Strong Investment Management and its CEO, Joseph Bronson.
In February 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a Complaint against Strong Investment Management, John Engebretson, and Joseph Bronson (f/k/a Joseph Engebretson), alleging that Strong Investment Management and Joseph Bronson engaged in a “cherry picking” scheme in which they funneled “winning trades into accounts maintained by “favored” customers while placing the losing trades in “disfavored accounts.” In essence, Strong Investment Management allocated a disproportionate percentage of losing trades into certain accounts. This is a violation of federal and state securities laws. It also constitutes a clear violation of the fiduciary duty owed by an investment advisor.
On June 15, 2018, a final judgment was entered by consent against Joseph Bronson (f/k/a Joseph Engebretson). On July 12, 2018, the SEC issued an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings” against John Engebretson and barring him from association with any broker dealer or investment advisor.
