The demise of Direct Lending Investments was sudden. The CEO resigned in March, shortly before the company was charged with a “long-running” fraud by the SEC. The company had apparently suffered a massive loss of investor capital due to a single failed investment. The investment was in VOIP Guardian Partners I LLC, a company that reloaned money to telecom businesses worldwide. VOIP filed for bankruptcy on March 11th.Last modified: August 19, 2019
