Customer Question

I have an inheritance involving a trust fund. It is part of an SEC corporation. I have a buyer who has a felony conviction who wants to purchase the corporate shares from me. Is it legal for a felon to control the trust fund of an sec corporation?

The SEC prohibits a felon from controlling such a corporation so I believe the proposed transaction would be illegal.

Expert:  David Stewart replied 3 months ago.

I would suggest however that you confirm with certainty it is an SEC corporation and that the offering is one the SEC specifically excludes felons from being able to control. I hope this helps. All the best, David
