Car Parking Schemes

If you have a Car Parking investment scheme in your SIPP you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation for mis-selling

Car Parking Schemes have been quite a common investment to be marketed to investors through their SIPP pensions. With promises of “guaranteed” high returns from the rental fees, it’s easy to see why they might be a tempting proposition.

Unsuitable high-risk Investments

However, because these schemes are high risk and not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) it means there’s no protection for the client. That’s why high-risk investments are generally only suitable for certain investors; who understand and can afford the risks and potential losses.

Unfortunately, some people who were advised to invest in these schemes were totally unsuitable for this type of investment in the first place.

Here’s some of the most notable Car Parking Investment schemes.

Best Car Parks

Best Car Parks, an investment scheme run by Best Asset Management promoting car parking space in Dubai.

Lanner Car Park Bonds

Was an investment which featured in controversial Portfolio Six which was run by DFM Greyfriars Asset Management

Another bond scheme linked to Best Asset Management who are not only connected to Greyfriars but to other high-risk investments which were reportedly in Portfolio Six – ABC Bonds and Olmsted Properties.

Park First

A sister company to the controversial Storage Pod investment Store First.

Park First were subject to an FCA intervention after the regulator decided it was operating as a Collective Investment Scheme (CIS).

CIS are regulated investments and in order for Park First to operate as one, it must also be regulated, which it wasn’t. The FCA then ordered Park First to restructure the investment and give their clients the opportunity to enter into a new arrangement or get their money back.

A statement by the FCA in October 2019 said they had started court proceedings against Park First Ltd, senior managers, CEO Toby Whittaker and several companies connected to Park First in order to seek compensation for investors.

After identifying a concern regarding my pension, I sought advice from Pension Claim Consulting. The response and customer service was swift and amazing. The courtesy and care taken throughout the whole process was phenomenal. The consultant’s communication from start to finish filled me with confidence that PCC do exactly what they state and were on hand whenever required. The level of understanding, empathy for the frustrations, and patience is by far the best I’ve witnessed. I cannot thank PCC enough for their outstanding work ethic and dedication to customers/clients.

Roger King
Pension Claim Consulting managed to reclaim some of my pension by constantly chasing the company that fraudulently took my money. I though that I had lost everything. I cannot thank them enough on recovering some of my pension back.
Susan Stringer
Excellent standard of service. The claim was protracted substantially by virtue of opponents trying hard to not accept any responsibility for their actions and not return the pension fund. PCC kept me fully informed throughout the process, obtained an excellent result for me.They also kept chasing the opponent when little action was taking place from them. The staff were always pleasant and helpful to deal with and very encouraging when I felt my claim was doomed to failure. I can not praise highly enough
