Conflicts of Interest
GCS is primarily a private placement banker and broker. A private placement is the sale of registered or unregistered securities to a limited number of qualified private investors, including institutional investors, accredited individuals, and entities that meet certain investor eligibility requirements.
Securities purchased through private placements typically fall into the category of alternative assets – investments that often have a low correlation to public markets and offer essential diversification to portfolios dominated by traditional stocks and bonds. However, private placements generally are highly illiquid, and are not subject to public disclosure obligations. Investors should consult professional advisers, perform deep due diligence, and engage in careful deliberation before investing.
Investing in private placements requires high risk tolerance, low liquidity concerns, and long-term commitment. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment. For those reasons, these offerings may be made available only to certain institutional investors and high net worth individuals and entities. As with all alternative investments, investors must meet certain eligibility tests to qualify as purchasers. Currently, entities must have assets of at least $5 million (or all individual owners meet accredited investor tests). Individuals must have a net worth of more than $1 million or gross income for each of the last two years of at least $200,000 ($300,000 with spouse) with the expectation of the same income in the current year, excluding one’s residence.
