Bill Hwang Family Office, Archegos Capital Management

In August 2022, the United States prosecutors submitted a 12 pages filing on Archegos Family Office (Archegos Capital Management LP), the prosecutors has accused Archegos of misleading banks on Archegos liquidity and portfolio concentration 6 months before its collapse in March 2021, with total exposure growing to around $160 billion with only $1.5 billion in net asset.  The next hearing is on Sept. 8 2022.  The case is U.S. v. Hwang et al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 22-cr-00240.  Earlier in April 2022, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has charged Sung Kook (Bill) Hwang, the owner of family office Archegos Capital Management, Chief Financial Officer (Patrick Halligan), Chief Risk Officer (Scott Becker) and Head Trader (William Tomita) for orchestrating a market manipulation fraudulent scheme from $1.5 billion asset value (March 2020) to $160 billion exposure (March 2021) that resulted in billions of dollars in losses.  United States SEC: “From at least March 2020 to March 2021, Hwang purchased on margin billions of dollars of total return swaps. These security-based swaps allow investors to take on huge positions in equity securities of companies by posting limited funds up front. As alleged, Hwang frequently entered into certain of these swaps without any economic purpose other than to artificially and dramatically drive up the prices of the various companies’ securities, which induced other investors to purchase those securities at inflated prices. As a result of Hwang’s trading, Archegos allegedly underwent a period of rapid growth, increasing in value from approximately $1.5 billion with $10 billion in exposure in March 2020 to a value of more than $36 billion with $160 billion in exposure at its peak in March 2021.”  Read Archegoes History
