NFA permanently bars Chicago-based commodity pool operator Tyche Asset Management LLC and its principal Phillip Moncel Galles from membership

September 25, Chicago—NFA has permanently barred Tyche Asset Management LLC, a former NFA Member commodity pool operator (CPO) located in Chicago, Illinois, and Phillip Moncel Galles, a former NFA Associate and principal of Tyche Asset Management LLC, from NFA membership status and from acting or being listed as a principal of an NFA Member.

The default Decision, issued by NFA's Business Conduct Committee (BCC), is based on a Complaint issued by the BCC and Tyche Asset Management LLC and Galles' failure to file an Answer. The BCC found that Tyche Asset Management LLC and Galles engaged in a deceitful course of conduct to defraud customers and failed to uphold high standards of commercial honor and just and equitable principles of trade in connection with a commodity pool or other investment vehicle that Tyche Asset Management LLC and/or Galles operated. The BCC also found that Tyche Asset Management LLC and Galles provided misleading information to NFA about the firm's activities as a CPO and failed to cooperate promptly with NFA during an examination.

The complete text of the Complaint and Decision can be viewed on NFA's website.
