SFO seeks information from investors in storage pod schemes

22 May, 2017 | News Releases

The Serious Fraud Office has opened an investigation into the Capita Oak Pension and Henley Retirement Benefit schemes, Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPS) as well as other storage pod investment schemes. The investigation includes the Westminster Pension Scheme and Trafalgar Multi Asset Fund which invested in other products.

Over a thousand individual investors are thought to have been affected by the alleged fraud, including those who invested their pension funds. The amounts invested total over £120m.

The SFO encourages members of the public who have invested in these schemes over the period 2011 to 2017 to complete a questionnaire which is available here.

Please note the SFO is unable to provide any further comment as the investigation continues.
