Carlson Law Files Claim against Aegis for Losses Caused by Roshan Perera
Carlson Law has filed a FINRA arbitration claim against Aegis Capital Corp. on behalf of a New York-based family who lost over $800,000 in what is believed to be a fraud perpetrated by investment advisor Roshan Perera (CRD# 4716321).
Perera convinced the family to invest in options strategies (“options straddles”), purchase shares of a company based outside of the United States (Pharming Group, N.V.), and purchase shares of a private company prior to going public (Zoomcar, Inc.). However, it is likely that none of these investments ever existed. Perera periodically sent the family account reflecting the promised investments and expected account values, which Claimants now believe were false representations of their accounts.
Surage “Roshan” Perera is a former financial advisor with Aegis Capital Corp. and the founder of Janues Capital, Inc. In March 2023, the federal government filed a 16-count indictment against Perera for securities fraud, investment advisor fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering. At the same time, the Securities and Exchange Commission brought parallel civil charges against Perera for violations of federal securities laws.
The DOJ indictment and SEC complaint both allege that Perera caused investors to lose millions of dollars by misappropriating investors’ funds and lying about investment opportunities and strategies. Perera also sent the investors false account statements and trade confirmations to show the expected returns and conceal his misappropriation of their funds.
