Los Pandos was promoted as a sustainable investment with generous returns for investors.  Involving 830 hectares of land located between Alicante and Valencia which included a vineyard. There were also plans to develop the rest of the land into an Eco-village with leisure facilities and other “Nodes of Interest” It was based in Spain and the directors of the project were Mike Clews and Eduardo Martin.

However, the investment hit problems and people have not seen the returns they were promised.

High risk investments

This type of investment is not authorised by the FCA which also means there’s no protection or access to compensation schemes such as the FOS or FSCS should things go wrong.

It’s also high-risk and illiquid and usually considered a suitable investment choice for investors classed as high net worth or sophisticated. Basically, someone with knowledge, experience and money they can afford to lose should the value go down.

However, many people who weren’t suitable ended up invested in Los Pandos as part of their SIPP.


How does investment mis-selling happen?

A lot of investment mis-selling happens as a result of unsuitable pension advice or failings in due diligence on the part of the SIPP provider regarding the investment.

In many mis-selling cases the story begins with an Introducer company using techniques like “Free Pension Reviews” as a cover to promote high-risk investments.

They can do this because they are not regulated and don’t have to worry about breaking the rules which prohibits this kind of investment being marketed to just anyone.

They then pass the client on to an adviser or SIPP provider. Most are paid commission by the investment company.

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
