International Property Finance Spain Limited (“IPFSL”), an unregulated corporate ramification of sinister N.M. Rothschild & Sons, is the next entity on the long list of Equity Release providers whose contracts have been declared null and void by Spanish Courts.

In a very elaborate recent ruling, the Courts have found in respect to Rothschild and IPFSL that their allegations cannot be upheld, for the following reasons:

  • The Credit Select Series 4 loan is a leveraged product classified as complex, for it is always used to invest in the financial markets. The loan is always linked to an investment that is pledged on behalf of the lender.
  • This product was presented as a means to avoid the devastating effects of the Spanish Inheritance Tax, presented as a voracious levy, by mitigating or even neutralizing its consequences.
  • The Credit Select Series 4 loan, sold through Hamiltons Financial Services, was offered by Rothschild -presenting itself as originating in a family of prestigious aristocratic lineage and noble descent- and meant the remedy for the very concerning issue of the Spanish Inheritance Tax.
  • Hamiltons Financial Services intervened as intermediary and advisor, always on behalf of International Property Finance Spain Limited who in turn, operated as an Investment Services Company (ESI) on behalf of Rothschild. This conclusion is arrived at -despite not being any contract linking both companies- because whether contractually linked or being a free agent, the actions of Hamiltons fully benefited IPFSL, who also did not oppose such actions.
  • The Credit Select Series 4 loan is declared null and void as a result of the customers not being properly informed of the risks, the product not being suitable on the basis of their age, financial expertise and objectives and more importantly, being misrepresented in respect to the confiscatory nature of the Spanish IHT and the “antidote” offered by this product in addition to the empty promise that the investment would generate enough to pay for the loan.

Concluding, the Court orders the cancellation of the mortgage loan signed with the defendant IPFLS and orders the claimants to return the advance payment received.

(acting for the claimants in this case was solicitor Salvador Martinez EcheverrĂ­a).

The Premier Group (Isle of Man) Limited Operating Clandestinely

The CNMVÂŽs building

 

The Spanish regulator CNMV has confirmed that the Premier Group is a clandestine operation in respect to its activities in Spain. A letter received at the law firm Lawbird Legal Services lists a number of firms that have operated in Spain illegally, including The Premier Group (Isle of Man) Limited, SL Mortgage Funding nÂș 1 Limited and The Premier Balanced Fund PLC.

Other banks that have operated furtively are ABN Amro N.V. (Gibraltar Branch), International Property Finance (Spain) Limited, BNP Paribas Trust Company (IOM) Limited and Banca del Gottardo.

The Premier Balanced Fund and Surrenda Link Mortgage

Share

 

The Premier Balanced Fund was described as an “experienced investor fund”, restricting it to people capable of understanding the risks, but they needed a lender who could come up with 40 million Euros to invest in their fund.

SLM Funding NÂș1 Limited won the tender process: it was selected by the Premier Group (Isle of Man) Ltd. to find those 40 million Euros, an order they carried out efficiently: Aareal Bank was convinced to pool resources, some say Rothschild too…

But there was an added element in the form of bricks and mortar: approximately 100 Spanish properties would be used as collateral to ensure that, if the investments went down, 200-odd British pensioners could be made responsible of footing the bill.

The “experienced investor fund” is now probably worth less than half and the ex- mariners, ex-policemen, house wives and other Spain-based retirees who were instilled with the Fear of God with the Spanish Inheritance Tax -and fell for the scam- have their properties, and lives, bogged down.

Perverse Nicky Flux, loyal till death to SLM, keeps sending her monthly letter out to pensioners…letters coming from a company that would disgrace any Nigerian 419 business.
