Brisa Investments Plc

Brisa Investments Plc

If you invested all or part of your pension or savings in Brisa Investments PLC, we at Beat the Banks would like to hear from you. We have come across many instances of unregulated advisors promoting investment in this scheme, which was centred on overseas properties, in particular a condominium project in Brazil. Needless to say, the promised yields turned out to be well wide of the mark.

Brisa Investments, and several other organisations, were heavily recommended by advisors from Cherish Wealth Management. The scenario was an all-too familiar one; pension holders were keen to find a way of enhancing their savings in order to obtain a more comfortable retirement and to leave a little more behind for their loved ones, so they sought a scheme that they could trust.

Along came advisors, many of them unqualified and unregulated, promising greater returns than they could possibly have imagined. Exotic locations were showcased, superb yields were promised and the potential risks were kept rather low-key. For the investor, surely nothing could go wrong. As we all know now, the whole scheme went horribly wrong.

The resultant fall-out has led to a significant number of compensation claims, most of which have been upheld. The Brisa Investments scheme is just one of several recommended and promoted by Cherish Wealth Management, a small company that has been responsible for hundreds of claims in recent times. Many of these cases have been or are being heard by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

A gamble that wasn’t worth taking

As with all such cases, at the beginning of the timeline there’s a well-meaning man or woman who simply wanted to make the most of their savings in order to enjoy their retirement. It’s tragic that so many ordinary people were hoodwinked into a scheme that, with hindsight, seems far more of a gamble than it ever needed to be. By the time those investors learned their lesson, it was all far too late.

Many investors were naïve enough to trust the advice they were being given, perhaps not realising just how much commission was being paid to the advisor. They were told that schemes such as Brisa Investments could be trusted, but of course, advisors had a strong motivation to say whatever needed to be said in order to get people to sign on the dotted line.

Many of the companies involved in schemes like this have folded, and those who offered advice have moved on to other roles, but the people who invested are left with nothing but disappointment. Here at Beat the Banks, we work hard to find the justice these men and women deserve, so if you lost money via Brisa Investments, you need to be speaking with our friendly, understanding specialists.

It’s not easy to pick yourself up again after such a major disappointment, but you could be due compensation for your loss. One conversation with our team could be all that’s needed to start the ball rolling, so please use the online contact form or call 0800 193 1234 today.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
