Getting Help If You Suspect Advanced Equities Misconduct Caused Losses

If you invested in Bloom Energy or another private offering from Advanced Equities, you may be concerned about the recent allegations of wrongdoing against the company. You are probably in search of answers about what to do next—especially if you have sustained investment losses.

What Should I Know About the Alleged Advanced Equities Scam?

Last year, Chicago-based Advanced Equities, Inc. faced investment misconduct charges from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in relation to its private equity offering in an alternative energy company. According to the SEC, registered broker-dealer Dwight O. Badger made false and misleading statements to investors and other brokers about their Bloom Energy offering, essentially lying about the company’s finances.

Co-founder Keith G. Daubenspeck, who was also reported to be the board chairman for Advanced Equities’ parent company, was accused of failing to adequately supervise Badger because the SEC alleged that he was aware of the misleading statements and failed to take corrective action. The company ultimately settled the charges with the SEC, and it was later rumored that Advanced Equities’ broker-dealer operations would be shutting down.
