Private Alternative Investment Vehicles. This website may contain information about private alternative investment vehicles or funds. There are substantial risks involved in investing in alternative investment vehicles and they are suitable only for certain investors. No representation is made that such vehicle’s or its manager’s investment process, investment objectives, goals or risk management techniques will or are likely to be achieved or successful or that the vehicle or any underlying investment will make any profit or will not sustain losses. You should read carefully the alternative investment fund risk disclosures contained on this website as well as the private offering documents for each investment. Such private offering documents contain important information, including, among other information, a description of risks, investment program, fees and expenses, and should be read carefully before any investment decision is made.
AAS (including its registered persons) is compensated by receiving placement agent fees, selling fees and similar compensation for the referral of investors (directly or through other financial intermediaries such as other broker-dealers who are also compensated) to private investment vehicles (including companies and funds). Such compensation is paid by investors (and deducted from the amount of their investment) and/or paid by the manager of such vehicles from its fees. AAS (including its registered persons) has an incentive to refer investors (or for the referral of investors) to vehicles managed by its affiliates, including GPB Capital Holdings, LLC, over unaffiliated investments, because of such affiliation and generally the expectation of greater compensation.
