As Vice President at MSA Investigations, Neil Moran oversees all of MSAI’s investigative services. Mr. Moran has over forty years of investigative experience in the private sector and with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and is a Certified Fraud Examiner. Prior to joining MSA Investigations, Moran worked for the international accounting firm BDO USA, LLP. As a Managing Director in BDO’s Litigation and Fraud Investigation Practice, he oversaw and participated in a number of investigations involving misappropriations of funds, bank fraud and money laundering. Mr. Moran managed various internal investigations related to large-scale corporate fraud and also administered BDO’s Investigative Due Diligence practice. Mr. Moran’s decades of service and expertise in investigation is expected to strengthen WealthGuard’s practice of due diligence of financial advisors for its clients.
"Having Neil on our Founders' Circle will bring an amazing boost to our company and clients," said WealthGuard founder and CEO, Roger Gershman. "Our success is guided by solid, qualified input from our advisers. We are so honored to have Neil join this list of notable contributors.”
Mr. Moran spent the first three decades of his career working in the FBI’s New York field office, where he investigated violations of various federal statutes, which included violent crimes, organized crime, terrorist groups and insurance fraud.

Kennedy Airport, the U.S. Department of Justice civil rights investigation into the murder of an Australian rabbinical student in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and the investigation of TWA Flight 800. Acting as an undercover agent in what was at that time the most successful automobile insurance fraud investigation in U.S. history, Mr. Moran helped garner the convictions of 122 people.
For his service, Mr. Moran received the FBI Shield of Bravery and the FBI Star, in connection with his actions and serious injuries he sustained during a joint FBI/NYPD investigation of a violent truck-hijacking ring.
