The Securities and Exchange Commission has filed fraud charges against Geoffrey Brod of Avon, Conn., a former portfolio manager with Aeltus Investment Management, now ING Investment Management, for not reporting 3,500 personal trades he made between 1999 and 2003 that earned him profits of $410,000. Many of the stocks Brod bought and sold he also held in mutual funds that he ran.

The SEC said he also breached the firm’s ethics code, which barred him from shorting stocks.
