GPB Capital is being investigated by United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). There is an outcome of the investigations that there is no negative news for investors about GPB Capital funds.
A few days earlier, news broke that the United States Department of Justice charged Michael S. Cohn, the Managing Director and a Chief Compliance Officer of GPB Capital, with the barrier of justice. There is a lot other negative news for investors that are pushing them to file claims to recover their investment losses related to GPB Capital Funds.
The investors have started recalling and Massachusetts Securities Division has started carrying investigation on GPB Capital. Its investigation includes a sweep of the sales practices by more than sixty broker-dealer firms that are involved in the sales of private placement alternative investment to the investors.
This whole process involves private customer disputes which are typically faster than court cases. Massachusetts Securities Division is continuously investigating the firms and sales practices that were marketing the GPB to investors.
Massachusetts securities regulators believe that the investors have been prompted by a tip about broker-dealer firm sales practices that came after GPB’s announcements.
There is only one option left for GPB investors to choose, and that is to continue sitting on the sidelines. But considering the time limits, they have to accept the potential claims that the investors could make.
