Were You Mis-Sold An Aegis Power Bond Investment?
Boosters said investing in the Aegis Power Bond No. 1 would deliver two big benefits. First, it would help produce more renewable wind farm energy in the UK. Second, it would deliver impressive returns to investors. Unfortunately, many unsuitable investors sank pension money into the Bond through SIPP investment. (SIPP stands for Self-Invested Personal Pension.)
In Fact, Aegis Power No. 1 was an unregulated high-risk investment. Its performance fell far short of expectations. Joint Administrators were appointed to Aegis Power PLC in August of 2016.
Now the company is in liquidation!
No investor wants to hear that one of his or her assets has gone into liquidation. For an investor without the ability to handle much loss, a bad investment like Aegis can be tragic. Many investors were mis-sold Aegis Power Bond investments by negligent or deceptive advisers.
Making An Aegis Power Investment Claim
The very end of the Aegis story has not been written yet. However, if you invested in the bond, you can already answer an important question: Should you have been advised to invest at all? An advisor may be at fault if you did not understand the risks presented by Aegis. You may be able to make a claim whether you invested with cash or a SIPP or SSAS scheme.
Non-standard high-risk investments like Aegis aren’t protected by FCA regulation. They fall outside the authority’s jurisdiction. Investors don’t receive the same level of protection offered by regulated investments. The risk involved in such investments may exceed some investors’ capabilities to handle.
