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)”

Ian Gaynor
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.

I was approached by Pension Claim Consulting after the company that was handle ing my SIPP had been investigated by the Financial Ombudsmen and informed me i had a case, with this information given to me i agreed to let them represent me in trying to reclaim my investment. All through the process i was informed of every step and on a regular basis even though it took many months the outcome was successful and i was reimbursed fully. This is a fantastic company to work with and dedicated staff who know their business. Many Thanks. Mike Dixon.
