Scott Noble, Whistleblower
Former Investment Advisor
As an investment advisor at Samex Capital Advisors in Fishers, Indiana, Scott Noble discovered $7 million in accounting irregularities in 2011. He had a choice: keep quiet or blow the whistle on his employer, Samex Capital CEO Keenan Hauke.
He blew the whistle.
Noble alerted the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Indiana Secretary of State Securities Division, resulting in a securities fraud conviction. Hauke was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison and ordered to pay $7.1 million in restitution.
After making his disclosures, Noble suffered financially and was unable to continue a career in finance.
