Keller Postman UK is proud to be working alongside MPs to support the Investment Fraud All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG).
The APPG, which was launched on 18 January 2022, aims to ensure that victims of investment fraud are protected. For example, the group will push for changes to current legislation to protect victims from unfair tax liabilities following investment fraud. The APPG will also seek to address investment fraud in sport.
Working together to help victims of investment fraud
The APPG is co-chaired by Alex Sobel, the Labour & Co-op MP for Leeds NW, and Caroline Noakes, the Conservative MP for Romsey and Southampton North.
Alex Sobel commented: “We are delighted to partner with investment fraud experts at Keller Postman UK. Convictions for investment fraud in the UK are at their lowest while incidents of fraud are reaching unprecedented levels. The forum’s objective is to campaign to redress the balance.
“We will be looking closely at unfavourable government and HMRC policies which currently do not support individuals impacted by investment fraud.
“The group’s objective is to review how law enforcement, regulators, and other stakeholders, respond to these crimes and how this can be improved to ultimately minimise the risks and better protect individuals.”
Keller Postman UK will help the group by providing expert legal advice on investment fraud. Speaking about our firm’s involvement, Ben Rees, Director of our Investment Fraud & Mis-selling group said: “Investment fraud has reached unprecedented levels – particularly in the sports sector with footballers being a lucrative target. Victims need a voice at the highest levels to effect positive policy change.
“The Investment Fraud APPG seeks to provide protection for victims whose lives have been significantly affected as a result of serious fraud. The Keller Postman UK team is delighted to be involved from the start. We look forward to working with the group to raise awareness of investment fraud, and its impact, and contributing to positive action to protect individuals.”
