Robert Tweed, formerly of Concorde Investment Services, Now Barred by SEC
Update Robert Tweed: Have you lost money with financial advisor Robert Tweed of San Marino, California? We are continuing to look into allegations made against Robert Russel Tweed. The SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) barred Robert Tweed from the securities industry in all capacities after a final judgment was entered against Tweed regarding his sales of the Athenian Fund. In 2017, The SEC filed a complaint in the Central District of California alleging that Tweed and Tweed Financial Services sent misleading statements to investors to hide investment losses caused by the Athenian Fund LP.
The SEC alleged that Robert Tweed solicited investors to put more than $1.7 million in the Athenian Fund. The fund was purported to invest in a master fund (the Quantitative Analytics Master Fund) that used a stock trading strategy. Instead, the SEC alleges that Tweed and Tweed Financial Services invested in two other investments that lost over $800,000. Moreover, Tweed sent investors false account statements to hide the losses.
FINRA (the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) previously brought a complaint against Robert R. Tweed. FINRA barred Tweed from the securities brokerage industry regarding allegations that he made material misrepresentations when inducing customers to invest in his hedge fund, called the Athenian Fund.
