RECEIVER’S COMPLAINT NAMING STANFORD FINANCIAL GROUP ADVISORS AS RELIEF DEFENDANTS

Receiver Ralph S. Janvey files this Complaint to add as relief defendants a group of financial advisors formerly employed by Defendant Stanford Group Company (“SGC”) and paid huge commissions, front-end loans, and other compensation for soliciting their clients to purchase fraudulent certificates of deposit from SGC’s affiliate, Defendant Stanford International Bank, Ltd. (“SIB”). The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has alleged in its suit against Defendants that the CDs sold to Stanford customers were not genuine investments, but rather, part of a massive Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors out of billions of dollars. Receiver Janvey seeks to recover more than $40,000,000 transferred to 66 financial advisors in connection with the scheme.

The monies paid by Defendants to the financial advisors named herein (collectively, the “Relief Defendants”) for the sale of CDs were not in payment for legitimate services rendered by Relief Defendants. The Defendants kept their fraudulent scheme going by using the Relief Defendants to lure new investors and then diverting the investors’ funds to the Defendants’ own illicit purposes. The commissions, loans, and other compensation paid to Relief Defendants came not from revenue generated by legitimate business activities, but from monies contributed by defrauded investors. Relief Defendants are in possession of assets traceable to Defendants’ fraudulent scheme. Relief Defendants have no legitimate ownership interest in these assets; they necessarily hold the assets in trust for the Receivership Estate for the benefit of defrauded investors.

The Receiver names the following Stanford Financial Group advisors as Relief Defendants. Over just a two-year period, these financial advisors received commissions ranging in amounts from $2.6 million to $200,000, along with other incentive compensation, to promote the sales of CDs. The Relief Defendants are listed here in alphabetical order:
