SEC Fund Filings by CIK
Mario Gabelli founded Gabelli & Co. in 1977 as an institutional broker-dealer firm. It has since rebranded as Gabelli Asset Management Company (GAMCO) Investors. The Gabelli Asset Fund opened to shareholders in 1986. GAMCO went public in 1999.
GAMCO offers domestic, global, and specialty equity funds, fixed income funds, and portfolios called the GAMCO Westwood Funds and the Comstock Funds.
In 2001, GAMCO became embroiled in a drawn-out lawsuit when lawyer Russell Taylor filed a claim against the firm, saying GAMCO was setting up sham small businesses in order to buy control of radio spectrum that the F.C.C. was auctioning. The Justice Department took over the case in 2006, and reached a settlement with investors in June of that year.
In 2008, the SEC sued Mario's son Marc Gabelli and Gabelli Funds' chief operating officer Bruce Alpert for allowing a hedge fund to engage in market timing using shares of a Gabelli fund. At the time, Gabelli Funds has already agreed to pay $16 million to settle related cases. A U.S. district court dismissed two large parts of the case involving fraud in March 2010.
GAMCO is headquartered in Rye, New York, and has offices in Greenwich, Connecticut, Palm Beach, Florida, Chicago, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Reno, Hong Kong, London, and Shanghai.
GAMCO plans to launch a new broker-dealer, G.distributors LLC, on August 1, 2011. Agnes Mullady will be in charge of the new b-d, which will focus solely on distributing GAMCO's mutual funds. The funds are currently distributed by Gabelli & Company.
