Signature Group

The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is conducting an investigation into collapsed business Signature Group in relation to a suspected £140 million fraud, involving 1000 investors from around the globe.

Operating for over seven years, Signature Group, an international property investment scheme attracted investors in the redevelopment of landmarks including Belfast’s Scottish Mutual Building and the Coal Exchange in Cardiff.

On 21 February 2024, the SFO raided three residences and made four arrests in Merseyside and Greater Manchester. All four individuals have been released pending further investigation. 

If you have any information you believe may be of assistance to the SFO during its enquiries, please provide this along with your name, telephone contact details and a brief description to [email protected].

The SFO is aware that individuals may have been approached by a third party in respect of further investment in assets previously owned and/or controlled by the Signature Group. Whilst the SFO cannot at this time comment on any proposed venture, it is strongly suggested that such individuals seek independent legal and financial advice.
