InvestUS Exit Strategy

If your SIPP contains InvestUS Exit Strategy then you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation

InvestUS Exit Strategy was a US property investment scheme.  It was billed as a “creative solution” to address the class divide created in the wake of 2008’s financial crisis and the mass foreclosures that followed.

The venture involved purchasing repossessed properties in Detroit, Chicago and Florida and renovating them so they could be rented out or sold on.

It was registered in the Seychelles and run by British man Stephen Wright.

InvestUS Legal difficulties

According to reports the promotional material aimed to deliver returns of 15% per annum over 3 years.

Some investors reported receiving the initial annual payment, however the payments  were seriously delayed when the scheme ran into legal difficulties.

Many people have become invested in high-risk investments like InvestUs through their SIPP, often on the advice of a Financial Adviser.

Cherish Wealth Management

Before InvestUS Steven Wright co-founded Cherish Wealth Management who became FCA regulated in 2010 through its principal company Shah Wealth Management. Wright left the company in 2011.

Cherish Wealth are known to have recommended several high-risk investments to clients, including InvestUS.

Both Cherish Wealth and Shah Wealth went into liquidation in 2016.


Some clients were introduced to this investment by Avacade, an unregulated introducer company who also had a relationship with Cherish Wealth.

In July 2020 the court ruled in favour of the FCA in a case regarding Avacade’s pension report service. They were accused of making “misleading statements which induced consumers to transfer their pensions into self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs)”

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. If you have any concerns at all regarding your pension, then I would highly recommend that you get in touch with them.

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
Paul Wilshaw
