NEW YORK, NY October 14, 2016 -—The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College presents “Beyond Operation Perfect Hedge: The Roomy Khan Story” on Thursday, October 20, 2016. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Operation Perfect Hedge was one of the most successful and aggressive investigations into wrongdoing on Wall Street. It would bring down billionaires, hedge fund managers, lawyers and members of boards of directors who had traded on confidential information. It would redefine the area of compliance and change the hedge fund industry forever.

At the center of this investigation was Roomy Khan, who had made her way on Wall Street as an analyst and trader in high technology stocks. She cooperated with the federal government for over six years during which she expounded the mechanics of the financial industry, various conduits of information and ultimately testified in federal court. She was personally charged with wire fraud and insider trading and she served one year in federal prison.

This free luncheon program on October 20th with Roomy will also feature Walter Pavlo, a contributor to Forbes.com and consultant on white collar crime.
