Investment Adviser Assessed $2,100 for Notice Filing Lapse

On April 15, 2002, the Commissioner entered into a Stipulation and Agreement with Target Holdings Corp. d/b/a Target Investors of 15 River Road, Suite 220, Wilton, Connecticut. The firm is an investment adviser registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The Stipulation and Agreement alleged that from 1997 until March 5, 2002, when a notice was filed, the firm failed to make the investment advisory notice filing required by Section 36b-6(e) of the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act and pay the related fees. In entering into the Stipulation and Agreement, the Commissioner acknowledged the firm's representations that the firm's client base was exclusively institutional in nature and that the firm had not been aware of 1997 state law changes requiring the filing of a notice. The Stipulation and Agreement required that the firm pay $2,100 to the department. Of that amount $1,500 constituted an administrative fine and $600 constituted reimbursement for past due notice filing fees.
