NFA takes emergency enforcement action against Texas firm, Strongbow Investments GP LLC. The Member Responsibility Action (MRA) is deemed necessary

  • NFA takes emergency enforcement action against Texas firm, Strongbow Investments GP LLC. The Member Responsibility Action (MRA) is deemed necessary because Strongbow has commingled the assets of the pool it operates with the firm’s assets and the assets of owner and principal, Patrick Dailey. Additionally, Strongbow and Dailey may have acted in a manner contrary to the interests of their customers by making unsecured loans to Dailey from the assets of both the firm and the pool for Dailey’s personal use without providing full disclosure to the customers. NFA is unable to determine the financial condition of the firm, the pool and the pool’s participants because NFA has not received all of the requested financial information from Strongbow. http://www.nfa.futures.org/news/newsRel.asp?ArticleID=2300
