Have you been given advice to invest in an unregulated investment scheme which promised excellent returns?
This may have been by using your pension funds, savings, loan or a re-mortgage.
Alarmingly, some investors are discovering that promised high returns never materialised or were short-lived and their hard earned money has disappeared.
Types of investment most commonly complained about include:
- Overseas property
- Hotel developments
- Forestry projects
- Fruit farming projects
- Carbon credits
- Storage pods
- Green oil
Whilst it is widely accepted that there are inherently high risks associated with certain types of investments, the Financial Services Authority has confirmed that your advisor has a duty to check that the proposed investment is sound and that the recommendation to invest is suitable for you.
If you believe you may have received inadequate advice on your investment and have subsequently lost out financially, TLW Solicitors are here to help on a no-win no-fee basis.
Even if the company who advised you is no longer trading, we may still be able to recover compensation for you.
