Green Oil Plantations was a UK based investment set up to fund Australian Mellettia tree plantations, with the idea of harvesting oil from these trees to produce bio-fuel and other agricultural products for profit.

But if you’re a Green Oil Plantations investor, you probably know all that… instead, you’re probably asking “what the didgeridoo happened to my money?!”

Well, although £24million was invested in Green Oil Plantations, we know from the liquidator’s and administrators documents that £3.5m was paid in commission to sales agents who introduced investors to the scheme – that works out at around 15% commission per sale – do you know how much YOUR introducer was paid?

The reports also say that…

“By the end of March 2013 the limited funds left in the companies were insufficient to fund the plantation 
to the point of first harvest and to meet the contractual investor returns. 
As a consequence, the directors concluded that the companies were insolvent.”

Many have already made mis-sold pension claims for having received negligent advice to invest in Green Oil Plantations Ltd, with many successful outcomes. Find out if you can do the same with a Free Initial Assessment with Spencer Churchill Claims Advice.

Green Oil Plantations And SIPPs?

Many of the people who invested in Green Oil Plantations Ltd did so through a Self-Invested Personal Pension, or SIPP after receiving a cold-call from a marketing company, and often after financial advice regarding the pension move.

SIPPs allow a greater range of investments than many other types of personal pension, but the flip-side is that this can include high-risk investments like Green Oil.

Investments like these may be fine for experienced investors who understand and can manage the risks associated with it, and/or people who have the money to afford those risks.

The problems begin when people who aren’t suitable for such a high-risk investment are advised to bet their retirement on them, and it’s usually the fault of a financial adviser for telling them to do so.

That’s where claims come in. If you invested in Green Oil Plantations Ltd through a SIPP pension, you may be able to make a claim for negligent financial advice.

Do you know how people complained about mis-sold investments and pensions in the last year?

A lot. Over twenty thousand complaints were made about mis-sold pensions and investments in 2020/21, a figure which had doubled since the year before.. It’s no secret how serious this problem is, and it just seems to keep getting worse.

People receive poor financial advice every day. Sometimes they don’t even realise that they’re owed whopping amounts of compensation.
