Invest in Carbon Credits?
Carbon Credits seemed like a perfect investment opportunity to many investors with the promises of high returns and substantially increasing their pension fund. Unfortunately, many of these investments failed resulting in the value of the Carbon Credits plummeting to the value of one pound, which often meant investors had lost their entire pension fund.
Carbon credits are classed as high risk investments, which are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, which meant they were only suitable for sophisticated investor and high net worth individuals. Therefore the recommendation of carbon credits by many financial advisors without doubt was not suitable for your average middle aged person with a pension.
There have been various financial advisors that have recommended Carbon Credits, most of which are no longer trading, such as 1 Stop Financial Services. Some of the main SIPP providers that accepted Carbon Credit investments were Pointon York (Curtis Banks) and GPC SIPP (Guardian).
