Guggenheim cooperating with U.S. SEC investigation -statement

NEW YORK, April 15 (Reuters) - Guggenheim Partners on Sunday said it is "cooperating fully" with an investigation of its asset management subsidiary that is being conducted by U.S. securities regulators.

The statement followed a report in the Wall Street Journal that said the company was asked to retain documents related to transactions involving a second company, ABS Capital Co LLC. Guggenheim has not been accused of wrongdoing.
