We review Signature Capital’s investments offering up to 16% per year

Signature Capital offers a range of unregulated property investments.

As at March 2019, these investments included an investment in the Dixie Dean Hotel paying 12% over 12 months, and an investment in The Signature Flotel paying 12% over 12 months (with a higher minimum investment).

I have seen an email detailing a further investment in the Martins Bank project paying 10% per year for investments between £15k and £45k, rising to 16% per year for investments of over £250,000.

Signature Capital frequently changes the individual properties on which its investments are based. However the interest rates above are typical of their offerings, based on previous offerings which are now "sold out".

Ralf Werner Tait and Ronald Klaus Kebler – clone firm scams with fake bonds and “diversified managed accounts”

Ralf Werner Tait claims to offer the following investments:

  • "Diverse Managed Accounts" paying a minimum return of between 0.5% and 1% per month "no matter what happens with the stock market"
  • 1 year bonds paying 6%, 8% or 10% depending on investment level
  • 3 year bonds paying 7%, 9% or 11% depending on investment level
  • 5 year bonds paying 10%, 11% or 12% depending on investment level
In reality the "Ralf Werner Tait" being run from the website rwt-capital.com is a clone scam.

An identical clone scam appears to be run from the website rkk-wealth.com using the name Ronald Klaus Kebler. I haven't seen investment literature for RKK but the scam is essentially the same.

We review Ocea’s bonds paying 6.85% per year

Ocea Group Limited (pronounced "Oh-see-yer", not "Oh-sha", according to a promotional video) is offering unregulated bonds paying interest of 6.85% per year for a term of five years.

The bonds are being promoted by the Crowdfunds platform and can be held in an IFISA. Crowdfunds is a regulated P2P platform (an appointed representative of Share In Limited), but the Ocea investment itself is a loan note issued by an unregulated company, and is therefore unregulated.

The company aims to raise money to buy commercial properties and convert them into residential property.

Nutmeg becomes latest firm to tap up its mailing list for venture capital investment

Robo-sales provider Nutmeg has announced that it is to offer shares in itself to its user base.

Eligible Nutmeg users will be able to invest via the CrowdCube platform before non-Nutmeg users.

According to its last published accounts (Dec 2017), Nutmeg made losses of £12.1 million on turnover of £4.5 million. It has never made a profit and has survived since 2011 on the welfare of venture capital investors, who hope that it represents a new model for mass-market saving and investment; the 21st century answer to the Man From The Pru.
