Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses | DMS Funds, DMS Advisors Charged by the SEC
Securities and Exchange Commission Charges DMS Funds, DMS Advisors
According to the SEC, DMS Advisors is a Pennsylvania corporation with its principal place of business in Leesport, Pennsylvania. According to the SEC, Peter R. Kohli (“Kohli”) is the president and CEO of DMS Advisors. According to the SEC, DMS Advisors has been registered with the Commission as an investment adviser since 2012. During the relevant time period, DMS Advisors served as investment advisor to the four mutual funds administered by The DMS Funds, another company operated by Peter Kohli.
The Commission’s complaint alleged that while DMS Advisors and Kohli solicited investors to invest in the four mutual funds run by The DMS Funds, they instead used the money for other purposes. The complaint also alleges that to conceal this fraud, Kohli sent investors fake financial statements purporting to show their investments in the mutual funds.
According to the SEC's complaint, in 2012, Peter Kohli launched DMS Funds, which ultimately consisted of four emerging market mutual fund series. According to the SEC, DMS Advisors, Inc. was DMS Funds' investment adviser, and a separate Peter Kohli-controlled company (Marshad Capital Group) owned DMS Advisors. According to the SEC, the complaint alleges that Kohli filed registration statements with the SEC that falsely overstated DMS Funds' sophistication and ignored the key risk that DMS Advisors and Peter Kohli would be unable to pay the funds' expenses, sold Marshad Capital Group warrants, falsely telling investors that Marshad Capital Group had taken steps toward an initial public offering, stole money meant to be invested in the mutual funds, and used it instead to pay fund expenses and, as the funds neared collapse, lied to investors and sold Marshad Capital Group promissory notes with no reasonable expectation that the purchasers could be repaid.
