Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating GPS Capital Management. Allegedly, investment advisors Daniel Wu and Dennis Lin Chen at the firm recommended Aequitas Notes (ACF), private promissory note investments to at least one elderly customer, who is now deceased. The notes were purchasing loans made to Corinthian College students. In 2014, the federal government filed a suit against Corinthian Colleges, and the advisors failed to mention the suit to the investor before making the purchase of the notes. The litigation with the college significantly decreased the possibility to collect on the loans it was purchasing with the funds raised from investors. This also likely made the ACF notes unsuitable for any investor after September 2014 when the litigation was filed. Aequitas then suspended interest payments and redemptions on all of its investment products including the ACF Notes in January of this year. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) then filed a complaint against Aequitas and its entities and officers in March 2016. These notes were not suitable for investors, especially elderly ones, and the brokers and GPS had a duty to only recommend suitable investments. Because they did not, GPS Capital Management can be held liable for investment losses and can be sued to recover those losses in the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration forum on a contingency fee basis.
