Mis-Sold Open Ended Investment Company

Open Ended Investment Companies (OIECs) have been very popular in the last 10 years because of the flexibility and choice they provide. OEICs allow individual investors to pool their money together if they have smaller amounts to invest. This enables them to acquire assets in a much wider range of areas, lowering the risk involved by creating diversification.

Open Ended Investment Companies can still be very risky and were often mis-sold. An adviser recommending an OIEC investment should make sure any potential investor is aware of all the risks involved, as well as ensuring the assets are chosen to match the individual’s personal attitude to risk.

Have you been mis-sold an Open Ended Investment Company?

OEIC investments should be seen as an investment to hold for at least five years because of the risks attached to them. Unfortunately, the volatility that has affected the world markets over the last two decades has led to many investors losing a large percentage of their money in these products – and if your adviser did not take external factors like these into account, you may have been mis-sold an Open Ended Investment Company.

Open Ended Investment Company mis-selling also occurs when the investor is not made aware of any additional charges they may accrue. For instance, OEICs incur initial fees and ongoing management charges which can significantly impact the performance of a fund, and can be as high as 6% of the initial investment value.

If you lost money unfairly as a result of Open Ended Investment Company mis-selling, you could be entitled to a claim. If the investment has ended, don’t worry: the claim may still be valid.
