SEC Charges Private Equity Firm With Pay-to-Play Violations Involving Political Campaign Contributions

The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a Philadelphia-area private equity firm with violating “pay-to-play” rules by continuing to receive advisory fees from the city and state pension funds following campaign contributions made by an associate in 2011 to the governor of Pennsylvania and a candidate for mayor of Philadelphia.

In the SEC’s first case under pay-to-play rules for investment advisers, TL Ventures Inc. agreed to settle the charges by paying nearly $300,000.
