    I have gone onto the samewebsite and thought the same thing. I would say by the location off there office and previous veviews everything is ok with them and going good.The 3 year fixed interest bond income 8 % can be taken out quartely or for slighly higher amount left in too mature. The first deposit is not returnable for 3 years with a lot off people doing the similar thing. I would say that overal sum which is neing held by the company is safe.

    I think we can safely say on the basis of your signup and recommendation that it isn't a good option

    I don't know that you can judge the reliability of investment returns from a location of an office.

    Still, if you can... per their website it's south of Tunbridge Wells, about 40 miles drive from central London. The nearest decent looking pub is the Neville Crest & Gun; it has two one-star reviews on Yelp. They have Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc on the wine list which is a good tipple but a bit too "trendy five years ago" to be the mark of a top sommelier. The food menu and drink selection s pretty similar to the other Brunning and Price pubs around the country.

    Does this make LC & F's bonds more or less secure? Or is it not the best way to do your due diligence on an investment where all your capital is at risk?

    Well, I guess if "a lot off people doing the similar thing", nothing could go wrong.

    Although if it does go wrong, there will be a lot off people chasing the small amount of remaining assets to split between them.

    Good luck with your investments; you may need it.

    If London Capital and Finance are paying for recommendations, they should at least screen for the ability to spell and write grammatically.

    London Capital & Finance aren't interested in the kind of mark who smells a rat when they see bad grammar and spelling.

    Out of interest does anyone have the address? I'm that way over weekend and may have a little look....

    Forgive a newbe for jumping in with slightly different investment warning. Found this thread after googling best savings rates to find out where to invest the proceeds from two accounts which are maturing this month (5 yrs ago you could get 5% fixed interest!) This LC&F seemed attractive but I have learned over the years that if it seems too good to be true etc. and agree with everyone who warned against it. Maybe I need to start a new thread? The investments I want to warn about are films. Several years ago I followed internet links and invested in several 'guaranteed' investment opportunities with promises of royalties, with all sorts of legal-sounding assurances & signatures, trailers, posters advertising the films. I gradually got sucked into investing in 4 films and £80,000, all of which turned out to be scams and the swindlers disappeared with the money. there doesn't seem to be any way of getting the money back. Fraud are not interested. So beware!! M
