In May 2017, the SEC filed a complaint against Verto Capital Management LLC and William R. Schantz, III, the founder and owner of Verto Capital Management LLC and Green Leaf Capital Management LLC. The SEC alleged that Verto Capital Management LLC and another entity controlled by Schantz issued approximately $12.5 million in promissory notes to at least 80 investors based on false representations regarding the collateral backing the promissory notes, the past profitability of William R. Schantz, III’s companies, Verto Capital Management LLC’s use of investor proceeds, and Verto Capital Management LLC’s internal financial reporting.
