Where’s the action up to?
Green Oil Plantations was promoted to retail investors in the UK as a lower risk, high return investment, often suitable for pension investments. The investment returns relied on the establishment of a Millettia tree plantation in Australia. The Millettia trees’ oil would be harvested after two years of growth and sold primarily as biofuel, but also as livestock feed and fertiliser. The business model relied on initial forecasts for the plantation that predicted high oil yields within the first two years, which ultimately did not materialise.
GOP went into administration in 2013 leading to the loss of many investors’ funds.
Green Oil Plantations had successfully raised funds from a large number of UK based investors to fund the establishment of the Australian plantation.
Given that the investment was high risk and in respect of an unregulated investment product, it was entirely unsuitable for ordinary retail investors, who were the target market. Many of our clients liberated their pensions or used life savings to invest in the Green Oil Plantations scheme and now find themselves in dire financial straits.
We’re acting for investors by bringing claims against IFAs and SIPP providers for negligent advice leading to the loss of their investments against the Green Oil Plantations professional advisors based in the UK.
