Madyson Capital Management is a real estate investment firm based in Denver, Colorado. As the company informed actual and prospective investors through its required Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) disclosures, the business plan was to “purchase multi-family properties and senior living care facilities that have potential to be or are cash flow positive.”
In reality, officials now believe that this investment firm was a fraud. As reported in the Denver Post, Madyson Capital Management and related companies took in more than $13 million from investors. Yet, instead of purchasing cash flow positive properties, most of the investor money was simply siphoned off by the firm’s owner, Joseph Ryan.
In November, an injunction was granted against Madyson Capital Management and a receiver was appointed to handle claims. The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies reports that the firm’s assets have been frozen and that Joseph Ryan has been ordered to turn over all information related to the company.
