On March 27, 2023, the SEC charged Roshan Perera and his firm, Janues Capital Incorporated, with defrauding at least one investor out of millions. Perera defrauded the investor by lying about investment opportunities and strategies, concealing trading losses, and paying other investors’ returns in a Ponzi-like fashion. Perera is also facing criminal charges for his conduct related to the fraud.
Roshan Perera is a Long Island resident who was a former broker registered with Aegis Capital Corporation. He was employed in the securities industry from 2004 to September 2022. Perera operated Janues Capital Corporation, which describes itself as a capital market advisory firm for mid-sized corporations. However, Janues Capital has never been registered with the Securities & Exchange Commission. The SEC has charged Perera and his firm for securities violations relating to his fraudulent conduct with Investor A as identified in the Commission’s Complaint.
“[…] Surage Roshan Perera, the Founder and Executive Director of Janues Capital, Inc. (Janues) in Bellerose, Queens, will be arraigned on a 16-count indictment charging him with securities fraud, investment advisor fraud, wire fraud, and money laundering, in connection with a scheme to induce an investor (Jane Doe) to purchase stock in companies that traded on the NASDAQ and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).” (United States Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of New York)
