Kinetic Investment Group, LLC – SEC Files Complaint | Goodman & Nekvasil P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
According to the SEC:
Since at least 2013, Kinetic Investment Group, LLC (“Kinetic Group”) and Michael Scott Williams (“Williams”) (collectively, “Defendants”) have raised at least $39 million from at least 30 investors in an unregistered fraudulent securities offering.
Defendants solicited investors to invest in Kinetic Funds I, LLC (“Kinetic Funds”), a purported hedge fund with a sub-fund structure that they managed. Defendants represented to investors that the largest sub-fund, Kinetic Funds Yield (“KFYield”), invested all of its assets in income-producing U.S. listed financial products hedged by listed options. Defendants also touted KFYield as a liquid investment.
In reality, Defendants diverted a substantial portion of KFYield investor capital to KCL Services, LLC d/b/a Lendacy (“Lendacy”), a private, start-up company owned by Williams. Lendacy was neither listed on a U.S. exchange nor capable of being hedged with listed options. Williams then directed Lendacy to make loans using KFYield assets to himself, entities controlled by him, and others.
Since at least 2015, Williams has misappropriated at least $6.3 million of Kinetic Funds’ assets to fund other business ventures and to pay for personal expenses.
Relief Defendants Kinetic Funds, Lendacy, Scipio, LLC (“Scipio”), LF42, LLC (“LF42”), El Morro Financial Group, LLC (“El Morro”), and KIH, Inc. f/k/a/ Kinetic International, LLC (“KIH”) (collectively, “Relief Defendants”) all received Kinetic Funds assets and proceeds of Defendants’ securities violations without any legitimate entitlement to the funds.
