Triad Advisors Subject to Multiple DisputesGPB Capital Holdings is a New York-based investment firm that offers exempt, private-placement securities. These investments inherently have a high degree of risk due to their nature as unregistered securities offerings (and without regulatory oversight).

The investment firm raised $1.8 billion from investors through private placements that invested in automotive dealerships, the waste management industry, and middle-market lending. These investments were high risk and high commission (nearly 8%) private placements.

Triad Advisors has been named in customer disputes alleging that brokers recommended investments in GPB Capital Holdings’ private placements. Currently, there are nine investor lawsuits alleging negligence for selling the private investments against brokers of the company. The damages requested are approximately $2.3 million. 

In November, Triad’s former parent company, Ladenburg Thalmann Financial, stated that Triad had been named in six customer arbitration complaints seeking a combined total of $1.65 million in damages. Since then, three additional disputes have been filed. 

In November 2019, GPB informed investors that they would not be supplying the audited financial reports by their deadline, even though investors have been awaiting the audits since April. In June 2019, GPB Capital Holdings reported losses in the value of two of its investment funds: GPB Holdings II and GPB Automotive Portfolio.

GPB Holdings II saw a decline in value of 25.4% and GPB Automotive Portfolio has decreased by 39%. GPB Holdings II and GPB Automotive Portfolio make up the majority of GPB Capital Holdings’ portfolio, raising $1.27 billion from investors.

GPB Capital Holdings manages the following nine private placements:

GPB Capital Holdings’ other funds also reported declines in an estimated value of 25% to 73%.
