    One post and disappears, despite stating has no connection. Do I smell a troll?

    I find that comment offensive mainly due to it's ignorance but also it's stupidity. For the record :-
    I have ABSOLUTELY no connection with either Dolphin or SIPP Club other than the fact that I have invested in Dolphin and I have also invested in opportunities advertised on the SIPP Club website.

    I have not posted further comments since my original because I was merely stating facts that may (or may not) have helped someone in making a decision. Virtually all of the preceding comments to the original post were made from a stance of ignorance. i.e. we don't know anything about it but it must be dodgy paying 12% AND it's unregulated.
    I would normally agree with several of the posters comment "if it's too good to be true............." but in this case I had first hand experience and thought that my comments would provide a balanced view.
    Since my original post, My wife and I have received further scheduled payments, as has my pension fund.

    Hope this helps :-)

    You only getting 12% a year?


    Why don't you give me your money and i'll give you 15% a year. You then tell all your mates about your brilliant investment, they then invest with me then I go bankrupt after a couple of years?


    How much you got to invest? I could do with a new car....

    Why has it taken you over 7 months to respond then? Nor have you made any other posts in the intervening period. Sorry but my suspicions are aroused when people get unnecessarily aggressive and petty.

    That doesnt mean a thing. Where is that money coming from? What happens when that tap is turned off?

    The FCA warning should be sufficient to deter would-be investors

    I've had no problems but keen to understand the experience of others before I invest again. It's also worth noting that the FCA warning above is about Dolphin Capital Investors not Dolphin Trust.

    I'm happy with the increased risk of an "alternative investment" but obviously keen to manage the risk, one of many ways to do this is to understand the experience of others hence my interest.

    FYI Dolphin Capital became Dolphin Trust mainly because of the bad publicity about Dolphin Capital Investors, my understanding (and I stand to be corrected) is that there is no relationship between DCI and Dolphin Trust.
