On Jan. 17, 2017, 10 investment advisory firms were sanctioned by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for violations of the so-called “pay-to-play” prohibition of the Investment Advisers Act Rule 206(4)-5 (the Rule). The firms accepted fees from public pension funds within two years of the firms’ associates making campaign contributions to individuals with potential influence over the funds (SEC Release 2007-15). The firms agreed to censure, cease and desist, and fines up to $100,000 despite the lack of connection between the contributions and any action by a public official.
