GPB Capital Holdings LLC, a global investment management firm focused on income-producing private equity and real estate, reached the $500 million mark for total capital raised, following a record month raise in December and a record quarter raise for the fourth quarter of 2015.

“The market is recognizing GPB’s unique approach to acquisitions and management, and our capital raise is indicative of that recognition,” said Dave Gentile, chief executive officer of GPB. “We look forward to servicing the retail channel into the future and are grateful to the trust that they have placed on us.”
