Carbon Credits

If you were advised to invest in Carbon Credits you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation for mis-selling

Carbon Credits came about as a solution for companies to offset their carbon emissions when regulations tightened. Basically, a carbon credit gave the holder the right to emit 1 tonne of CO2 and companies would purchase these credits when their own levels exceeded their CO2 obligations.

High-risk Investment

Whilst this sounds like a nice system for a greener World, in terms of investment it became very complex, with companies, investors and traders buying and selling the credits.

This type of investment is very volatile and high risk and some companies went bust when the value of the credits fell. It is also not covered by the FCA which means there is no safety net in the event things go wrong.

SIPP Investors may have been mis-sold

Many people who are not suitable for high risk investment have nonetheless found themselves invested through their Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). As a result they have lost substantial amounts of their retirement fund.

However, if you were advised to invest in Carbon Credits and you do not meet the high-risk investor profile then you may have been mis-sold and could claim compensation.

The FOS upheld a complaint against Cowley & Miller relating to advice to transfer into a SIPP and invest in Carbon Credits.

Sovereign Financial Services advised some clients to invest in high-risk investment schemes, including Carbon Credits, through SIPPs.

A thoroughly positive result and experience. In all honesty I didn't have much hope of any success following a truly dodgy pension investment. I spent years angry at myself then decided to let these guys have a go on my behalf. It took hardy any effort on my part and they kept me fully informed, then out of the blue I got a call saying they have won all my pension back plus more and within days it hit my account. Thrilled with their effort and professionalism. I dealt with a few different staff and all were informative, polite and helpful. I great end to a terrible situation. 100% genuine review and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you.
