What does a Mis-sold Investment look like?
Mis-sold Investments are often the cause of a financial adviser’s negligence when advising you.
If you invested in high-risk products, and didn’t want to take big risks with your investments then your financial adviser may be negligent if they advised you invest your money or pension into things like:
Land waiting for planning permission.
Hotels, Houses, Forestry, Plantations…
Parking spaces at airports and town centres.
Storage Units for renting out.
