deeproot Funds, LLC Founder Charged by SEC | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses

According to the SEC:  

On August 20, 2021, the Securities and Exchange Commission charged a San Antonio, Texas-based investment adviser with operating a years-long fraudulent scheme that raised approximately $58 million from nearly 300 investors in two investment funds.

The SEC’s complaint alleges that Robert J. Mueller and his company deeproot Funds, LLC were investment advisers to two pooled investment funds that Mueller created. According to the complaint, Mueller and deeproot persuaded investors, many of whom were retirees, to cash out annuities they held with other investment companies and invest in the funds. The complaint alleges that the funds ultimately received more than $58 million from investors. As alleged, Mueller funneled more than $30 million of the funds’ assets to other businesses he controlled, and used at least $820,000 of new investor money to pay earlier investors. The complaint also alleges that Mueller and deeproot, acting with and through defendant Policy Services, Inc. — another entity Mueller owned — paid Mueller approximately $1.6 million in salary that was not adequately disclosed to the funds or their investors while also misappropriating another approximately $1.5 million to pay Mueller’s personal expenses.
