The SEC Reportedly Bars Daniel Mackle Sr. in Connection with Silver Edge Funds
According to public documents, the Securities and Exchange Commission has barred financial advisor Daniel Mackle Sr. (CRD#: 2239531) as of March 3, 2023.
The Securities and Exchange Commission’s charges are in connection with Daniel J. Mackle, Sr and his alleged sale of membership interests in two pooled investment vehicles – the Silver Edge Pre-IPO Fund LLC and the Silver Edge Venture Fund LLC that were purportedly formed to invest in pre-IPO securities.
Since January 2019, Silver Edge and its CEO, Daniel Mackle, allegedly procured interests in a portfolio of pre-IPO shares which they offered to investors as membership interests in the Silver Edge Funds.
According to the charges, Silver Edge is the Manager of the Silver Edge Funds and Mackle was reportedly the sole member of Silver Edge. During the relevant period, Silver Edge and Mackle purportedly sold over $65 million worth of interests in the Silver Edge Funds to investors with the assistance of a sales force of unregistered brokers. These agents allegedly marketed and sold series interests in the Silver Edge Funds nationwide and were reportedly paid management fees as a percentage of the amounts sold. Working as an unregistered broker is in direct violation of Section 15(a) of the Exchange Act.
According to Daniel Mackle Sr.’s broker report, he will be required to pay a fine of $975,000 and disgorgement in the amount of more than $2.25 million, among other sanctions. Mackle reportedly has three customer complaints filed against him according to his broker record. Allegations include unauthorized, excessive trading, misrepresentation and failure to supervise, among others.
