The Wall Street Journal reports that US federal prosecutors are investigating whether a former executive at Bear Stearns improperly withdrew funds he invested in one of the firm's two troubled hedge funds whilst at the same time talking up the prospects of the funds to investors. Ex-Bear fund manager Ralph Cioffi is said to have withdrawn $2m of his own money from one of the funds just weeks before the funds imploded in April. The fund manager, however, did retain some $4m in the other (much riskier) fund. Cioffi left Bear last week.
