    PHILADELPHIA—Recent examinations of hedge funds have uncovered a range of problems, a top Securities and Exchange Commission official said, including firms boosting their performance, and the fees they collect, by changing the way they value investments. Andrew Bowden, the director of the SEC's Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, said the agency has found a series of deficiencies at the roughly 185 hedge-fund firms in which it completed exams.
