Losses Caused by GPB Capital Holdings
Meyer Wilson has been following and reporting on GPB Capital Holdings since it came under regulatory inquiry earlier this year for potential securities laws violations. The Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth has announced an investigation into 63 brokerage firms that allegedly sold private placements from GPB Capital Holdings
GPB Capital Holdings is an investment firm that raised $1.8 million from selling private placement securities that invested in automotive dealerships, the waste management industry, and middle market lending, including:
- GPB Holdings LP
- GPB Holdings II
- GPB Holdings III
- GPB Automotive Portfolio LP
- GPB Waste Management, LP
- GPB NYC Development LP
- GPB Cold Storage
Private placements are non-public offerings used to raise capital. These investments are often sold to "accredited” investors. Private placements are generally illiquid, meaning they cannot be readily sold and are not traded on the open market. They offer investors higher returns than publicly traded stocks and bonds, but limited company information and lack of regulatory oversight creates a greater risk for financial losses. They are not suitable for most retail investors, and brokerage firms are required by industry rules to do a careful due diligence analysis before selling them to its customers.
