Carduus Housing is another example of a high-risk, unregulated investment that has been mis-sold to investors, quite often as part of a SIPP.
High-risk, unregulated investments are not covered by The Financial Conduct Authority, which means there is no protection in the event things go wrong.
They are not usually suitable for the average investor because of the risks involved and the potential to lose money.
Financial mis-selling occurs as a result of people being advised into investments when they shouldn’t be. This may be down to poor advice or plain greed on behalf of the adviser, who could be getting commission for recommending a particular product.
Whatever the reason – if you were wrongly advised into an investment by a regulated company or individual, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
