Report dated 10/09/2014 @ 1:29 PM
Mathew Martoma, 40, a portfolio manager, has been sentenced in New York to 9 years in prison for his role in one of the 'most lucrative' insider trading schemes ever, involving $276 million, and ordered to forfeit a $9.3 million bonus he earned through it.
He was also ordered to forfeit his interests in his Florida home and several bank accounts, as his conduct was "deeply corrosive to financial markets".
Martoma, a portfolio manager of CR Intrinsic Investors, a division of hedge fund behemoth SAC Capital, was convicted in February this year for collecting confidential information about a high-profile Alzheimer's drug trial from two doctors, and making profits and avoiding losses of $275 million for SAC Capital.
The sentence handed down for insider trading was in line with what Manhattan's federal prosecutor Preet Bharara had sought ahead of the hearing.
