Cool Blue Samui is an HIGH RISK Overseas Property Investment, unregulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Investors were invited to fund a villa complex on the heavily developed island of Koh Samui, Thailand, often in exchange for some high-projected returns, often to be paid into their SIPP Pension.

Because it is high risk, Cool Blue Samui and other overseas property investments are often only suitable for people who are:

  • High Net Worth Individuals, earning over £100,000 per year, or with £250k of net assets
  • Sophisticated investors, with a wealth of knowledge and experience in investing.

If you do NOT fit either of these descriptions, or were not told that your Cool Blue Samui investment would be high risk, you may have been mis-sold your pension investment, and could be able to make a claim against the negligent advice of your financial adviser for placing you into a Cool Blue Samui investment.

How Could Cool Blue Samui Effect A SIPP?

SIPPs allow greater choice for investments for pension savers, but this can also sometimes include high-risk investments.

Many people invested in Cool Blue Samui, and while some of those people will have gone into the investment with their eyes wide open in full knowledge of the risks it presented based on their own wealth of investment experience, many will have not known that this was always a high-risk investment.

If the investment was to fail, and the majority of money inside the SIPP was invested in it, it could devastate the pension completely.

Because unregulated investments have no protection from the FSCS if they fail, recovery could be difficult.

However, if it can be shown that a financial adviser provided negligent financial advice over a final salary pension transfer or investment in something like Cool Blue Samui, you may have a claim.

    “The decision has unfortunately made that the project has become uneconomic”

    “We are now looking to sell the project”.
