Securities Authority raids Leumi unit Psagot
Psagot Ofek Investment House executives were taken for questioning.
The raid at Psagot Ofek followed raids on December 5 at the offices of Leumi Pia Trust Management Co., Bank Leumi's mutual fund management company.
The affair began in the spring of 2003, when Psagot Medadit - 120 raised a huge amount of capital. Psagot Medadit - 120 is a mutual fund of Psagot Managers of Mutual Funds - Leumi, a subsidiary of Bank Leumi.
Psagot Medadit - 120 raised a record NIS 1.7 billion within days of being marketed, raising suspicion at the Securities Authority that Bank Leumi had violated the Investment Advice Law by illegally recommending the fund to the bank's customers.
