Connecticut state Treasurer Denise Nappier said she will seek repayment of fees paid to investment advisers to the State of Connecticut Trust funds if it is determined that the advisers received business from the illegal activities of former treasurer Paul Silvester. Mr. Silvester pleaded guilty last week to racketeering and money laundering in connection with his oversight of the $18 billion pension fund. According to U.S. Attorney Stephen Robinson in Connecticut, Mr. Silvester solicited bribes and rewards from five private equity money managers in exchange for selecting them as investment advisers. In the days between his election defeat and the expiration of his term, Mr. Silvester committed to or invested in several private equity funds. Late yesterday Ms. Nappier said she had begun a review to determine if legal remedies are available to the pension fund. She also said she was sending a letter this week to all investment services firms doing business with the pension fund, to learn if a finders fee was paid in obtaining the business.
