Were you given advice to invest in an unregulated investment scheme which promised excellent returns?
You may have been given unsuitable investment advice by being advised to use your pension funds, savings or even to re-mortgage your home to invest in a scheme which promises guaranteed high returns. Alarmingly, some investors are discovering that promised high returns never materialised or were short-lived and their hard earned money has disappeared.
Common types of investment complaints include:
- Overseas property
- Store pods
- Hotel developments
- Forestry projects
- Carbon credits
- Contracts For Difference (‘CFD’s’)
- Foreign Exchange (‘FX’ or ‘Forex’) trading
- Green oil
Whilst it is widely accepted that there are inherently high risks associated with certain types of investments your advisor has a duty to check that the proposed investment is sound and that the recommendation to invest is suitable for the level of risk that you are comfortable taking with your money.
If you have lost out financially as a result of advice which you feel was not suitable for you then we may be able to recover those losses for you.
