Brenda Smith CRD #4348518
-Update 8/29/19- SEC Files Complaint Against Brenda Smith Alleging Fraud and Ponzi Scheme
Brenda Smith was a formerly licensed financial advisor with CV Brokerage, Inc. According to Brenda Smith’s CRD, Brenda Smith was barred from the securities industry in June 2019.
According SEC Allegations:
This case involves an investment advisory fraud in which Brenda A. Smith and the other Defendants solicited securities trading strategies. However, Brenda Smith took the vast majority of these funds for unrelated companies, to pay back to her investors, and for personal use. And, in 2019, confronted with at least one investor trying to redeem its investment, Brenda Smith created a fictious valuation of assets back by false claims that Brenda Smith held billions of dollars in assets through a company she owned.
From at least February 2016 through the present, Brenda Smith, defendant Broad Reach Capital, LP (“Broad Reach Fund”), defendant Broad Reach Partners, LLC, and Bristol Advisors, LLC, engaged in this fraud. Brenda Smith dominated and controlled the Entity Defendants such that they were essentially her alter egos.
According to FINRA:
On May 23, 2019, in connection with an ongoing FINRA investigation into potential misstatements about the financial performance of an investment fund that were made during the course of private securities transactions in which Brenda Smith participated, FINRA staff sent to Brenda Smith, pursuant to FINRA Rule 8210, a request for documents and information. As stated by Brenda Smith’s counsel in a telephone call on June 4, 2019, and by this agreement, Brenda Smith acknowledges that Brenda Smith received FINRA’s request but will not produce the requested documents and information at any time.
According to Brenda Smith’s CRD, a customer dispute has been filed alleging sales practice violations against Brenda Smith. According to Brenda Smith’s CRD allegations include fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, unlawful conversion, violation of section 5104 of Pennsylvania uniform voidable transaction act and permanent injunctive relief. This customer dispute is pending and seeks $3,341,500 in damages.
