Global Money Management Paul Henry Levy
A convicted San Diego hedge fund fraudster has been sentenced to five years in prison by a federal judge.
Paul Henrie Levy, a partner and co-manager of defunct hedge fund Global Money Management, had faced as much as eight years in prison for his role in defrauding investors of some $49 million. He is the third GMM executive to be sentenced in the case.
According to prosecutors, prior to GMM’s collapse in 2004, Levy and co-manager Marvin Friedman ran a Ponzi scheme, raising money through word of mouth, family referrals and, eventually, from institutional investors referred by banks, beginning by about 1997. In addition to using newly-raised money to pay off existing investors, Levy admitted that he diverted some $7 million for his own personal use; a court-appointed receiver later found more than $18 million in investor money in Levy-controlled accounts.
Prosecutors say Levy, who pleaded guilty to tax evasion and conspiracy to commit mail fraud in July, also bilked the government out of about $2.3 million in taxes by filing false returns from 2001 through 2003.
