Sagepoint Financial Customers Suffer Losses From GPB Funds

If you are an investor who suffered losses after a Sagepoint Financial broker sold you GPB private placements, our investor fraud lawyers at Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (SSEK Law Firm) would like to talk to you. GPB Capital Holdings is accused of running a $1.8B Ponzi scam. Sagepoint Financial is one of more than 60 broker-dealers whose registered representatives sold these investments to their customers.

Sagepoint Financial is part of Advisor Group, a huge network of independent wealth management firms. In August, the broker-dealer and another Advisor Group firm, Royal Alliance, were prominently named by the lead plaintiffs in the first class action securities case against GPB Capital. The firms’ brokers had sold them their investments in the GPB Automotive Portfolio and the GPB Holdings II funds. The plaintiffs, like so many other investors, had sustained substantive losses in the wake of the Ponzi fraud allegations, the suspension of investor redemption, the massive drop in value of all of the GPB Funds, and the other regulatory and civil troubles plaguing the alternative asset firm.

David Rosenburg, a former GPB business partner, is once more accusing GPB Capital Holdings of committing a “massive securities fraud” when it raised over $1.5B from investors. Rosenberg is a former GPB employee and the ex-CEO of its Prime Automotive Group. 

Two years ago, before going to work for GPB, he sold $235M of his stake in the Prime Automotive Group to the alternative asset firm. GPB Capital fired him in September just weeks after Rosenberg sued the company in Massachusetts Superior Court and accused it of operating a major Ponzi scam. 

GPB Capital Auditor Makes Decision To Step Down

Once again, investors will have to wait for the audited financials that GPB Capital Holdings keeps promising them and then delaying, as the alternative asset firm’s latest auditor has suddenly resigned. This means that for the foreseeable future, those who bought the company’s private placement funds will continue not to know exactly what their investments are worth. 

This is not the first team of auditors to suspend its work with GPB Capital, which invests mostly in waste management and auto dealerships and is accused of operating a $1.8B Ponzi scam.

GPB Capital Holdings is accused of operating a $1.8B Ponzi scam. Many investors are claiming massive losses in the wake of the various GPB funds plunging in value, the suspension of investor redemptions, and the regulatory and criminal probes swirling around the alternative asset firm. 

New Class Action Offers Details Into Alleged GPB Ponzi Scam

This week in Austin, Texas, another proposed class securities case was filed on behalf of investors of GPB Capital Holdings and its many funds. This latest investor lawsuit directly accuses the alternative asset firm and its executives of running an alleged $1.8B Ponzi scam and provides new details into the fraud.  

Filed in the US District Court for the Western District of Texas by the lead plaintiff and GPB investor Millicent Barasch, the class action securities fraud case was announced at a press conference. Toni Caiazzo Neff, an ex-Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) examiner, spoke about how she’d previously tried to blow the whistle on GPB Capital Holdings. 

Newbridge Securities in Boca Raton, a Florida-based broker-dealer,  is censured by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and has been fined $225K over its purported failure to adequately supervise the sale of exchange-traded funds, structured notes, and other complex securities. 

The self-regulatory authority (SRO) also fined the firm’s investment banking director, Bruce Jordan, $5K for failing to properly supervise the sales. He is suspended for two months.
