The investments of the ThomasLloyd Group include, at least as far as profit participation rights or limited partnerships are concerned, a high entrepreneurial risk, in which losses up to a total loss of the invested money are possible. The existing risks must be duly informed when arranging the facilities. In the case of consulting errors, claims for damages may exist against the intermediaries and personally liable partners. In addition, investors have a right to extraordinary termination in this case.
Some of the ThomasLloyd Group’s personalities evoke unpleasant memories of former companies that have filed for bankruptcy several years ago.
From 2008 to 2016, Mr. Hans-Peter Kirschbaum was a member of the executive board of ThomasLloyd Private Wealth AG (2010 converted into: ThomasLloyd Private Wealth GmbH, merged in 2016 into the fourth Cleantech Infrastrukturgesellschaft mbH). Mr. Kirschbaum was previously the authorized signatory of the European Securities SECI GmbH Securities Trading Bank (SECI) until July 2007. The latter GmbH was one of the providers of the Multi Advisor Fund I GbR and was the managing partner of the Capital Advisor Fund II GbR, two funds that collected millions as a blind pool, using the sales force of Ravena Finanz Management AG, the sub-mediator IFF AG began. Many investors have reported that they have not been properly informed about the risks of loss and liability of SECI’s investments brokered at the time. Attorney Dethloff has acted in numerous lawsuits against the sales and fund companies and has u. a. a final verdict against SECI triumphed.
The other managing director of numerous companies in the ThomasLloyd Group, Mr. Matthias Klein, was an authorized signatory at Wölbern Invest KG until September 2011, a few years later a spectacular bankruptcy became known. According to the ThomasLloyd Global Asset Management GmbH website, Mr. Klein was the general representative for marketing and sales at Wölbern Invest KG. FIHM Fonds and Immobilien Holding München AG have also been insolvent since 2013. There, Mr. Klein retired from the board several months before the bankruptcy.
According to the announcement of the commercial register, until the beginning of 2018 Klaus-Peter Kirschbaum was also managing director of DKM Global Opportunities Fonds 01 GmbH. This company is closely associated with the ThomasLloyd Group. It is not only located at the address of numerous companies of the Thomas Lloyd Group in Frankfurt am Main, but also has the same managing director as numerous companies of the group, Mr. Matthias Klein. Mr. Kirschbaum was also a leader in several other companies of ThomasLloyd: Cleantech Infrastructure GmbH, Cleantech Management GmbH, Cleantech Treuvermögen GmbH and ThomasLloyd Global Asset Management GmbH. The DKM Global Opportunities Fund 01 GmbH has made significant losses. At the end of 2015, more than 16 million euros were recorded as financial assets on the balance sheet, compared to just over 2.5 million at the end of 2016. This is offset by around 2.4 million euros in liabilities. After that, the investments of the remaining investors are not worth much anymore. In this context, the following notice of the Commercial Register of 30 August 2018 appears to be of interest:
„DKM Global Opportunities Fund 01 GmbH, Frankfurt, Hanauer Landstraße 291B, 60314 Frankfurt am Main. The publication of 10.08.2018 has been corrected by the company as follows: The registry court has received a draft contract for the planned merger of this company with London-based CT Infrastructure Holding Ltd (registered in England and Wales with register number 11127669) , All creditors of DKM Global Opportunities Fund 01 GmbH must provide security for their claims under § 122j UmwG, unless they can claim satisfaction and the creditors their claims the reason and the amount within a period of two months after the date of publication of the merger plan register in writing and make it credible that the merger will jeopardize the fulfillment of their claims; In accordance with § 122j (2) UmwG, the right to a security deposit is only available to the creditors in respect of such claims that were made before or up to 15 days after publication of the merger plan or its draft.

A convincing entrepreneurial reason to merge the failed company now with a company in London, is not apparent. It could give the impression that those responsible are trying to escape the otherwise threatening insolvency proceedings in Germany in this way.Repeated inquiries from investors regarding DKM and ThomasLloyd investments suggest that the mediation did not always provide complete and accurate information about the risks involved. Concerned investors who have not been informed of the total risk of loss and the specific risk of blind pool investments should have them checked to see if they are entitled to any compensation claims against the distributor, or if they at least have the opportunity to terminate the system extraordinarily To revoke accession.
