How to Recover Investment Losses involving GPB Holdings II LP
Have you suffered losses investing in GPB Holdings II LP sponsored by GPB Capital Holdings? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.
GPB Holdings II LP is a private placement fund sponsored by GPB Capital Holdings, LLC, a New York-based global asset management firm. According to filings with the SEC, GPB filed a form D to raise capital from investors in 2018. The total offering amount sold to 6,095 investors was purportedly $645,813,889. The sales fees and commissions paid to brokers was reportedly 8% of the total offering amount, according to the filing with the SEC.
GPB & Execs Charged with Ponzi-like scheme
In February 2021, the CEO of a GPB Capital Holdings, and two others were arrested in connection with a massive “Ponzi-like scheme” that allegedly defrauded 17,000 investors across the U.S. out of more than $1.7 billion, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.
The Securities and Exchange Commission and seven state regulators reportedly filed similar charges on February 4. The SEC also reportedly charged GPB Capital with violating the whistleblower protection laws.
The SEC alleges that the “Ponzi-like scheme” continued for more than four years because GPB was able to hide the funds’ financial condition from investors, neglecting to deliver audited financial statements and register two of its funds with the SEC.
