Why would any advisor/ platform/ wire house etc. keep there clients in F-Squared? There’s no upside just a lot of exposure and potential liability.

how did these two firms(Virtus Investments and F2) get away with this massive fraud scheme for so long? There must be justice including jail-time and disgorgement of ill gotten gains from both firms. Does the SEC even understand the size of this fraud?
