William Galvin, Massachusetts’ top securities regulator, has subpoenaed former MassMutual broker Keith Gill to testify about the Reddit GameStop squeeze.
A spokesperson for Galvin’s office confirmed to ThinkAdvisor Thursday that Galvin’s office sent a subpoena to Gill late Monday.
The spokesperson added that “This is a standard review of Mr. Gill’s registration. I don’t have any further information on the investigation right now.”
Gill, known as “Roaring Kitty” on YouTube, played a key role in the trading frenzy surrounding video game retailer GameStop and other stock the week of Jan. 25.
He is supposed to testify on Feb. 26 before the Securities Division in Boston.
