Stirling Mortimer Global Property Fund
On 9 April 2018, the Director of the Serious Fraud Office closed the SFO’s investigation into allegations of fraud against a number of investments companies operated by Stirling Mortimer Global Property Fund PCC.
The Director concluded that there is no prospect of obtaining sufficient evidence to bring charges in this matter.
The SFO investigated an allegation of fraud against a number of investment funds operated by Stirling Mortimer Global Property Fund PCC Ltd (“SMGPF”), a protected cell company with limited liability based in Guernsey. SMGPF assisted the SFO with its enquiries. This investigation focused on three SMGPF funds which operated between 2007 and 2011:
- Stirling Mortimer No.4 Fund Cape Verde;
- Stirling Mortimer No.6 Fund Morocco;
- Stirling Mortimer No.7 Fund Cape Verde II.
The Director of the SFO accepted this case for investigation in December 2012.
