Cesco Investments – plagiarised website and unregulated bonds paying 3.5% per year

Cesco Investments logo

Cesco Investments offers bonds paying 3.5% per year, according to its website.

I have seen online reports, since deleted, claiming investors have been contacted with offers of higher rates.

However, 3.5% is the rate quoted on Cesco Investments’ website (cesco-investmentsltd.com), so we will go with that. Few details are provided; a “Find Out More” link underneath the description of Cesco’s bonds doesn’t work at time of writing.

We review Finnigan-McNeil Properties’ unregulated investment in property development paying 10% – 21.1% per year

Finnigan-McNeill Properties logo

Finnigan-McNeil Properties offers investment in property renovation with an advertised 10% Return On Investment (ROI).

Investors invest in individual properties which Finnigan-McNeil renovates and either sells or rents out.

Finnigan-McNeil's website makes clear however that the company is committed to a 10% "guaranteed" return regardless of whether the property the investor invests in makes a 10% return on sale.

Magna Global (aka MIX1 and MIX2) – we review their unregulated bonds paying 11.7% – 12% a year

Magna Group (aka Magna Asset Management) is offering unregulated bonds paying interest over 12 months or 18 months as follows:

  • 12 months: Pays interest of 12% over the one-year term, rolled up and paid out at the end of the year. Issued by MIX2 Limited.
  • 18 months: Pays interest of 18% over an eighteen month term, rolled up and paid out at the end of the 18 months, which is equivalent to 11.7% annual interest on an Compound Annual Growth Rate basis. Issued by Magna Investments X Ltd, aka MIX1.
Investment in the 12 month MIX2 loans has a minimum investment of £30,000, while investment in the 18 month MIX1 loans has a minimum investment of £10,000.

The lower minimum investment is the only concrete reason I can think of for investing in the longer term loans, given that they pay the same rate of simple interest despite having a longer term (and therefore having higher liquidity and default risk).
