Misguiding SIPP Schemes: The German Property Group (GPG)

The German Property Group, previously known as the The Dolphin Trust was a pension scheme that invested in unregulated property. Specialising in listed German buildings, it has been estimated that over £600 million in pension savings has been lost to it. The main goal of the investment was to refurbish the buildings as luxury apartments, however investors have not yet seen any of their money returned to them.

A lot of the people who invested in this scheme have lost large sums from their pensions. In turn, this has affected their livelihoods and standards of living. If you have been victimized by The German Property Group, Gowing Law Solicitors can help you claim compensation.

Who is The German Property Group?

Created in 2008 by Charles Smethurst, GPG attracted over £900 million in investments worldwide. These investments came from the investors’ pension funds that were created through private sector investments, SIPPs, SSASs (Small Self-Administered Schemes) and hedge funds. These investors were promised a large return on their investment. For example, if an invested offered a loan note, it could return 10-12% between 2-5 years.

Were you mis-sold your SIPP?

One of the biggest reasons why you may have been mis-sold a SIPP from the German Property Group is due to the lack of return. GPG claimed that there was no risk on their SIPP. This is due to the fact that they had a safety net known as the “First Legal Charge.” It states that if the investor does not receive their money back from the borrower, they have the right to re-claim their investment.

Here are some additional examples about how you may have been mis-sold a Germany Property Group SIPP:

  • The buildings you invested in (due to the advice of GPG) were not complete, despite GPG owning them for more than 5 years
  • You believe there is a breach of contract between you and your borrowers
  • You believe that your financial advisor did not tell you all the risks of GPG, therefore you have a negligence claim.
