What Did Kynaston-Carnoustie Financial Consultancy Ltd  Do Wrong?

Kynaston-Carnoustie Financial Consultancy Ltd is associated with the Green Retirement plan. The Green Retirement Plan was an independent occupational pension company administered by Mark Harris of AC Management and Administration Ltd. The Green Retirement plan invested in Para Sky Plantation, a teak forestry scheme in Brazil. The fund was marketed by a company called Global Forestry Investments (GFI). A Serious Fraud Office investigation found that of £24 million of saver’s money,  £13m was paid over to the GFI Director’s’ own personal bank accounts. From this, £8m was spent paying off creditors of another unrelated failed investment scheme.

According to the new trustees of the Green Retirement Plan, the advice to invest in the Para Sky Plantation was “poor; the scheme was not mainstream, and most people were better off remaining in their former pension or savings arrangement”.

Kynaston-Carnoustie Financial Consultancy Ltd also recommended people transfer their pension to Premier Children Services; another high-risk investment only suitable to sophisticated investors – click here to read more about Premier Children Services. https://allegiant.co.uk/pension-claims/pension-respondent-profiles/premier-children-services/
