Zamansky LLC Investigates BlackGold Opportunity Fund LLC and BlackGold Opportunity Offshore Fund LLC, the KKR-Backed Energy Hedge Funds

Apr 3, 2015


New York, NY (Law Firm Newswire) April 2, 2015 – Zamansky LLC announces that it is investigating the BlackGold Opportunity Fund LLC and BlackGold Opportunity Offshore Fund LLC (the “BlackGold Funds”), over large losses reported to investors. The BlackGold Funds are the $2 billion hedge funds managed by KKR-owned BlackGold Capital Management, Inc.

The investigation concerns the April 2, 2015, report by Bloomberg News that auditors increased the losses reported to BlackGold Funds investors from 6% to 17%. The increase was the result of differences in the valuation of energy bonds held by the BlackGold Funds. These losses came weeks after investors were advised by the Funds’ manager that they were pleased with the results, reported Bloomberg News.

According to Jacob Zamansky, investment fraud attorney, the BlackGold Funds’ revisions raise serious issues about its overall control and management of risk. During the 2008 financial crisis, valuation risk played a huge role in causing losses to investors, Zamansky believes. Any investor concerned about their investment in the BlackGold Funds, should have it reviewed by a professional.
