CASE ALLEGATIONS: Virtu Financial is a financial services company that provides product offerings in execution, liquidity sourcing, analytics and broker-neutral, and multi-dealer platforms in workflow technology. As part of its operations, Virtu Financial claims to have established information access barriers, or separations between different departments or individuals designed to block the exchange of confidential information and prevent conflicts of interest.
The Virtu Financial class action lawsuit alleges that defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Virtu Financial maintained deficient policies and procedures with respect to its information access barriers; (ii) accordingly, Virtu Financial had overstated its operational and technological efficacy as well as its capacity to block the exchange of confidential information between departments or individuals within Virtu Financial; and (iii) the foregoing deficiencies increased the likelihood that Virtu Financial would be subject to enhanced regulatory scrutiny.
On February 17, 2023, Virtu Financial disclosed that it “has been responding to requests for information from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission [‘SEC’] in connection with an investigation of aspects of [Virtu Financial’s] information access barriers.” On this news, the price of Virtu Financial stock declined.
Then, on April 28, 2023, Virtu Financial reiterated that it had been responding to requests for information from the SEC in connection with an investigation of aspects of Virtu Financial’s information access barriers, and added, in relevant part, “[i]n the absence of a settlement, [Virtu Financial] currently believes it may receive a Wells Notice from the SEC,” and “[t]he proposed action would be expected to allege violations of federal securities laws with respect to [Virtu Financial’s] information barriers policies and procedures for a specified time period in and around January 2018 to April 2019 and related statements made by [Virtu Financial] during such period.” On this news, the price of Virtu Financial stock declined more than 5%, further damaging investors.
THE LEAD PLAINTIFF PROCESS: The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 permits any investor who purchased or acquired Virtu Financial securities during the Class Period to seek appointment as lead plaintiff of the Virtu Financial class action lawsuit.
