Order Instituting Administrative and Cease-and-Desist Proceedings Pursuant to Section 8A of the Securities Act of 1933, Sections 203(e) and 203(k) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and Sections 9(b) and 9(f) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, Making Findings, and Imposing Remedial Sanctions and a Cease-and-Desist Order
On October 16, 2015, the SEC instituted settled administrative and cease-and-desist proceedings against UBS Willow Management L.L.C. and UBS Fund Advisor L.L.C. According to the SEC: "These proceedings arise from UBS Willow Management's misrepresentations and omissions concerning a material change in the investment strategy of UBS Willow Fund L.L.C. (the 'Fund'), a continuously offered, closed-end, registered investment company and UBS Willow Management's only client.... In particular, the Fund's Offering Memorandum ('OM') misrepresented the Fund's investment strategy from fall 2008 to 2012 because UBS Willow Management failed to update it to reflect the change from long credit to short credit." With respect to UBS Fund Advisor L.L.C. the SEC stated: "By allowing UBS Willow Management to deviate from the principal investment strategy without adequate disclosure to the Fund's Board or investors, UBS Fund Advisor failed to reasonably supervise UBS Willow Management."
