A recent DDC assignment for a very large investor group uncovered that a hedge fund manager was arrested outside the USA for sexual assault on a woman while at a hotel. DDC was able to access the case files, and the video tape and still pictures of the HF manager show him chasing the woman down a hotel hallway in his underwear. This criminal case went to trial, and the HF manager was convicted and incarcerated for approximately one year. DDC believes most hedge fund investors are not aware of this incident because they, and the background check service providers they use, do not check a person everywhere there is a contact or connection, and/or under all name variations ever used.
