SECURITIES AND BUSINESS INVESTMENTS DIVISION
Stipulation and Agreement
 
On June 12, 2009, the Banking Commissioner entered into a Stipulation and Agreement with Fox Run Management LLC of 35 Fox Run Lane, Greenwich, Connecticut.  The firm is the general partner of, and holds a controlling interest in, Fox Run Alpha Fund, L.P., a broker-dealer registered under the Connecticut Uniform Securities Act and an issuer of securities.  The Stipulation and Agreement alleged that, from 1999 to 2008, Fox Run Management LLC rendered investment advisory services for compensation solely to Fox Run Alpha Fund, L.P. at a time when Fox Run Management LLC was not registered as an investment adviser in Connecticut.  Fox Run Management LLC has since applied for Connecticut investment adviser registration.  In executing the Stipulation and Agreement, Fox Run Management LLC represented that it had relied upon prior legal counsel in not pursuing investment adviser registration at an earlier date. Pursuant to the Stipulation and Agreement, Fox Run Management LLC agreed to refrain from engaging in violative conduct and to remit $2,500 to the agency.  Of that amount $500 constituted an administrative fine; $1,500 would be applied to reimburse the department for past due registration fees; and $500 would be applied to defray the Divisionís examination and investigative costs.
 
Fox Run Management LLC became registered as an investment adviser in Connecticut on June 12, 2009.
